In addition to the Awards Ceremony, the VAM Summit featured our DNEG talent in two thought-provoking events.
First up, Sameet Gupte (Head of Environment of DNEG India) took part in a panel titled ‘The Art of Filmmaking with VFX’. During this event, Sameet and other industry veterans discussed the importance of directors, producers, and the production team thoroughly understanding VFX and effectively incorporating it into the pre-production stage.
The next day, Jaykar Arudra (DNEG VFX Supervisor) spoke to audiences about his award-winning work on Brahmastra. Sharing his experience navigating the technical and creative challenges of bringing ‘The Astraverse’ to life, he provided valuable insights into the complete production process, from the initial concept stages to the final delivery.
