BBC: Blue Planet II

Blue Planet II is a landmark UHD and HDR BBC One series taking viewers on a magical adventure across the greatest, yet least explored places on our planet – our oceans. More than four years in production, the Blue Planet II team mounted over 125 expeditions, visited 39 countries and every ocean. Using cutting-edge breakthroughs in science and technology, crews spent over 6 000 hours underwater using over 40 different capture techniques – filming everywhere from our familiar shores to the deepest seas.

Andy Quested (Standards Lead, BBC) chairs this not-to-be-missed session with Patricia Fearnley (Head of Natural History, Factual Content, BBC Worldwide) Andy Corp (Head of Technology, BBC) and Colin Jackson (Series Producer, BBC) to explore the ground breaking technical planning behind this extraordinary and policy changing series.

Ncam: Visualising your VFX shot in real-time
Camera operator, Andrei Austin, Nvizible’s Head of CG, Richard Clarke and Ncam’s CEO Nic Hatch will explore how real-time CG and pre-visualisation technology was employed for the filming of Outlander Series 2 & 3 and what value this brought to the cast and crew.

Ncam delivers real-time visualisation solutions to the creative industry that puts them in control of their creative journey. At its core is a unique marker-less camera tracking solution that enables users to see CG assets through the lens, whilst the real-world elements, or scene, is in shot.
