For 14 months, Bradley Munkowitz and a team of 5 graphic all-stars infiltrated Digital Domain’s vfx pipeline and pushed through over 8 minutes of on-Screen graphics for the film TRON Legacy. They used every technique they could pull together: high-end Cinema4d mograph animation, particle-based Houdini simulations, heaps of traditional graphic design, and standalone graphic applications using open Frameworks that they built themselves. In this event, Bradley will present case studies of their major graphic sequences in the film, and share the immense design process of each task.
