  • Machine Learning, AI and Compositing with Mike Seymour | TVAP EP55
    This week's guest is co-founder of FXGuide, arguably the first and foremost podcast and blog in our field. He also co-founded FXPhd which was my route into the industry so this was a massive honor for me.We dive deep into Neural Rendering (which Mike has been involved with since 1999) machine learning and practical applications within visual effects and filmmaking.We then discuss the ethics of machine learning  and art, why there won't "a metaverse" and some of the most likely applications of AR and VR.This raises some general points about the application of new technology which it would be well of us to heed.Sometimes you want to see the artists work as they talk.

  • The Importance of Matchmove within the VFX pipeline | TVAP EP54
    In this episode with Matt Merkovich of The Matchmoving Company, we talk about the importance of 3D tracking/matchmove in the VFX industry and what it means to be a matchmove artist. Matt is an expert user of Syntheyes and has been a great influencer in getting it where it is today.  He also uses it for almost all of his work, spiralling almost three decades in the VFX industry.Matt believes #Syntheyes is by far the best 3D tracking software out there and has by far "the best 2D tracking system in the world!", so in this episode, I sit him down to find out why he believes so.Being a Matchmove artist myself, having been a user of PFTrack in the past and an ongoing user of  3DEqualizer I was very curious to hear why Matt thinks so.3D tracking or Matchmove as you may call it, ties perfectly with all the other departments in the VFX pipeline, to complete VFX shots in the biggest visual effects movies out there, making this episode an important one, to gain insights from an industry veteran like Matt.Matt's filmography spars from Minority Report, Star Trek Voyager, Doctor Dolittle 2, The Amazing Spider-Man and more. Here's Matt's IMDB.Matt's company The Matchmoving Company provides 3D tracking services globally and can currently be reached through https://www.mattmerk.com/ As always, if you liked this episode, please 👍 like, 📝 comment, 📢 subscribe, and 📣 share!Listen to all episodes on our websiteWatch our other videos📣The Importance of Matchmove within the VFX pipeline | TVAP EP54 (P-1)📣Inside VFX Recruitment with Melissa Blakey, Global Head of Talent at Crafty Apes | TVAP EP53 (P-1)📣Inside VFX Recruitment with Melissa Blakey, Global Head of Talent at Crafty Apes | TVAP EP53 (P-2)📣Behind The Desk with Hugo Guerra | TVAP EP47Follow Us 👍👍📌📌◉ Instagram◉ Twitter◉ LinkedInSubscribe to us on YouTubeChapters00:00:00 Coming Up  00:02:19 Introductions  00:03:54 Who is Matt Merkovich  00:07:17 Where my interest for film originated  00:14:59 From Lightwave to Matchmoving on Minority Report  00:23:28 Minority Report Matchmoving Pipeline in the 2000's  00:26:24 Evolution of Aspect Ratios00:30:18 Comparing Syntheyes, 3dequalizer, Boujou, PFTrack and more  00:35:13 Good & Bad Tracking Markers  00:38:54 Staying relevant in an evolving industry  00:44:36 Being a VFX artist in the mid 90's  00:46:45 Shot talk - Challenges  00:48:38 The future of 3D tracking  00:53:41 Comparing 3dequalizer and Syntheyes  01:01:01 Matchmove Artists - The underappreciated department  01:03:53 About The Matchmoving Company  01:04:11 Unionize the VFX industry  01:04:11 Conclusion Sometimes you want to see the artists work as they talk.

  • Inside VFX Recruitment, with Global Head of Talent at Crafty Apes, Melissa Blakey | TVAP EP53
    Inside VFX Recruitment with Melissa Blakey, Global Head of Talent at Crafty Apes | TVAP EP53 (P-1)For many VFX Recruitment is a bit of a black box - we send off our reels and CV and then hope for the best. This week we go behind the curtain with Crafty Apes, Global Head of talent, Melissa Blakey.We cover Melissa's own fascinating career - she started working on-set before moving into post and then worked for almost 20 years in VFX Production before moving into Recruitment! We discuss why she decided a career on set was not for her and start to unpick the way recruiters and VFX houses select candidates.Next we laser in on her best practices for candidates as well as the Crafty Apes philosophy for hiring and retaining staff.WFH resumes, showreel interviews, changing departments we will be discussing all this and more.Unusually for many VFX Houses, Crafty Apes tends to focus on Generalists and on permanent positions so we go into what that means in a market largely dominated by specialists and freelancing.Sometimes you want to see the artists work as they talk.
