Beyond Your Wildest Dreams: The Making of Slumberland‘s Dream World
Rosie Walker (Compositing Lead) & Daniël Veder (Build/Look Development Lead)
Sunday, 19 March | 11:00 – 12:15 PM PST
Join DNEG Compositing Lead Rosie Walker and DNEG Build/Look Development Lead Daniël Veder for a closer look at the stunning visual effects in Netflix’s latest family-friendly flick, Slumberland. Starring Jason Momoa and Marlow Barkley, the film follows a daring young orphan named Nemo as she journeys through a land of dreams to find a precious pearl that will grant her greatest wish.
Tackled by a core team of approximately 200 artists, DNEG delivered 230 shots over seven sequences. Rosie and Daniel will share key insights and learnings from this challenging project and dive into its most impressive moments. Audiences will learn more about the magnificently colourful ballroom made entirely of butterflies, a mystical underwater world and a terrifying nightmare ‘squid’ made from smoke.
This is a can’t-miss presentation that will inspire junior and senior artists alike.
