Staying Creative in Enterprise: Survival Tips for Artists

May 27

08:00 AM - 08:20 AM

Description

Being creative in any industry is hard, but working for businesses that are not traditionally art-oriented adds another level of challenges to artists on top of coming up with brilliant ideas. As more and more businesses investing in XR, a new door of opportunities have been open to the artists that are beyond the traditional entertainment industry. As exciting as it sounds, many artists will also find themselves in a situation having to explain their art and its value to other people at their company who are not used to 3D animation or XR production workflows. In this talk, I would like to share my experiences working as an XR 3D Artist at Verizon, a company I thought I would have no business working for just five years ago. I will share how I adapted to the role, the industry, and how I learned to provide my creative inputs using my past projects as examples.

The new medium of immersive computing offers so much opportunities for expression, and at the same time puts creatives in a tricky spot when they have to consider all the parameters that is beyond their control. When every users have different ergonomic and environmental preferences, it's important for us to design and build dynamic experiences that fits into the audience's context. We will explore why proceduralism and machine learning play a crucial role in growing content and experiences in the new spatial medium. Followed up with examples and case studies, we will review the insights and lesson learnt on how to use technology to augment new forms of hardware input and creative directions.

In theatre and film, the 'mise en scène' refers to the 'placing on stage', or arrangement of design and scenic elements. Often this takes places within a frame of a stage or screen, but in XR, the literal frame of storytelling is removed. This session will go through the elements of mise en scène as seen in theatre, and best practices for XR.
