DIGIPRO 2020 Virtual

August 11 – 13, 2020
11:30 am – 3:00 pm (PDT, UTC-7)
Receptions to follow each day 3 pm – 4 pm

The Digital Production Symposium (DigiPro 2020) brings together the world’s premier creators of digital visual effects, animation, and interactive experiences.

Scientists, engineers, artists, and producers share ideas, insights, and techniques that bring innovation to real-world production.

2020 marks the 10 year anniversary for this conference which we are excited to host virtually, enabling wider access to this normally sold out event.

This year DigiPro and The Pipeline Conference are joining forces and working together to bring you a multi-day virtual event!

The conference program will include both live sessions and pre-recorded content. DigiPro talks are all pre-recorded and will be available on-demand during the conference through the end of September. TPC talks will be live and recorded for subsequent on-demand playback.

Our virtual conference platform is Whova. Once you are registered this is where you can watch sessions, ask questions, and chat with organizers and attendees.

We will also have a virtual lobby running in High Fidelity, including receptions at the end of each day. This link will go live on Monday evening to allow people to explore the space and mingle with other attendees before the conference begins.

Conference Keynote – 30-minute live Keynote Presentation (By Richard Bluff) followed by a 30-minute live panel discussion

Richard Bluff, Production Visual Effects Supervisor for The Mandalorian, will discuss the unique aspects of this ground-breaking Lucasfilm series. The team was challenged to develop and implement cutting-edge technology to do real-time visual effects for the live-action series and in doing so changed the production paradigm.

2020-04-7 COVID-19 UPDATE

Everyone here at DigiPro HQ has been keeping a close eye on the COVID-19 situation. As you are probably aware many upcoming events and conferences have been cancelled or gone virtual. We are following the lead of SIGGRAPH 2020 and we are hopeful that DigiPro will be held in person as planned.

Please know that, whether live or virtual, DigiPro fully intends to present and publish a full program of content this year, so we encourage everyone to make submissions as usual.

In addition, due to the upheaval caused by the sudden shift in working environments, we are extending the submission deadline by 2 weeks.

Submissions are now due May 8, 2020.

We are anxiously waiting to see more of your amazing work!

Meanwhile, we are actively discussing the possibility and logistics around a virtual conference. Please contact us at the email below if you have ideas or feedback about how a Virtual DigiPro might play out. In the meantime, we encourage you to follow updates from WHO, CDC, and SIGGRAPH::
