INTERNATIONAL CINEMATOGRAPHERS GUILD TO HOST THREE PANELS AT NAB SHOW (April 24-25) GAME Of THRONES: Behind the Scenes with the Filmmakers GHOST IN THE SHELL: Creating a Cyber Future NEXT GENERATION IMAGE MAKING – Taking Content Creation to New Places The panels, hosted by the The International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE, ICG Local 600), at the NAB Show (April 22 – 27,) will examine advanced and future imaging techniques, including the use of machine intelligence in pre and post production. The discussions will be set within the context of high profile, consumer content including Game of Thrones and Ghost in the Shell. All sessions will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Monday, April 24, 1:00 PM, Ghost in the Shell: Creating a Parallel Cyber Future, produced in collaboration with the ICG Location: South Hall Upper Room S220 Ghost in the Shell is a sci-fi thriller about cyber-enhanced soldier, Major (Scarlett Johansson), her battles against hacker terrorists and her hunt for her stolen identity and its perpetrators. Combining artistry with cutting edge innovation, the filmmakers designed unique tools and systems, including an original, anime inspired 28-color palette; custom LED lights; a video-photogrammetry rig for 3D video inserts; and a DCI P3 workflow from camera through color finishing and deliverables. See clips and hear stories about the making of this visually groundbreaking motion picture based on the original Japanese manga. Panelists: Jess Hall, BSC, Director of Photography (Transcendence, Brideshead Revisited, Hot Fuzz) John Dykstra, Visual Effects Designer (Oscar Winner: Spider-Man 2, Star Wars, Emmy Winner: Battlestar Galactica) Michael Hatzer, DI Colorist, Technicolor Justin Wagman, Post Production Supervisor Moderator: David Geffner, Executive Editor of ICG Magazine Monday, April 24, 2:30 PM Game of Thrones: Behind the Scenes with the Filmmakers South Hall Upper Room S220 With its spectacular battles, dragons, reverberating hugs, and death winnowing storylines, season 6 of Game of Thrones ratcheted up the tension and raised anticipation for an eventual, epic series conclusion. The season was shot simultaneously by director/ cinematographer pairs rotating between stage and location (as is the custom), spotlighted a cast of hundreds and featured nearly 1900 visual effects shots. Learn how the filmmakers applied the Game of Thrones naturalistic lighting style to new locations and storylines, how they chose to block and edit the emotional turning points, and how they harnessed postproduction to visually unify the footage. See some great footage and understand why, in 2016, Game of Thrones drew an amazing 25.1 million viewers across all major platforms.

Room 251 Light field, volumetric capture, computational photography, real-time rendering, and generative imaging have the potential to transform image making for all forms of content. Already, they are contributing to the blurring lines between live action and computer-generated imaging, and between what takes place in preproduction, production and post. What is science behind these new technologies and how do they work? What are their current limitations and promise? Glimpse what NAB’s Central and South Hall could look like in five to ten years… Panelists: Andrew Shulkind, Director of Photography (Clients include: Paramount, DreamWorks, Sony Pictures, Apple, Adidas, AT&T, Budweiser, Google, Old Spice and Samsung.)
