Innovative Storytelling Tools and Tech

In this segment of #GALSNGEAR on NAB Show Express, we’ll tackle new tools for storytellers. We’ll take a look behind the scenes on a Marvel movie and learn how on-set VR tools have transformed the challenges of integrating effects seamlessly into the film. And dive into new color tools and workflows that have taken storytelling to a new level at Netflix and throughout the industry. We’ll talk about workflow for accessibility. And the democratization of production and post, including how filmmakers are grappling with the challenges of remote production.
