VIEW Conference announced special presentations celebrating the release of Pinocchio, the new live-action feature from Walt Disney Pictures. Starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto and directed by Academy Award-winner Robert Zemeckis, this highly anticipated film re-imagines the classic 1940 Disney animated feature.
In a live presentation on stage at Torino’s OGR venue, visual effects supervisor Kevin Baillie takes the VIEW Conference audience on an eye-opening journey behind the scenes of Pinocchio, with a comprehensive analysis of the many and varied techniques used to bring the film’s unforgettable characters and fantastical worlds to life. Following this, appearing on video, Pinocchio director Robert Zemeckis discusses with Baillie his innovative approach to filmmaking, and talks about the creative journey he took to bring this new adaptation of the beloved story to the screen.
The two Pinocchio presentations are part of VIEW Conference 2022, the 23rd edition of Italy’s premiere animation, VFX, games and computer graphics conference, which takes place from October 16 to 21 in the city of Torino, Italy. VIEW Conference 2022 invites industry professionals, students and enthusiasts to attend in person at Torino’s futuristic OGR venue, where the live program of talks, presentations, workshops and masterclasses promises a vibrant and inclusive atmosphere. This year most speakers are attending in person, however online access enables a global audience to enjoy the entire event via exclusive livestream.
“There is nothing more exciting than pairing up a classic story with a legendary film director,” says Conference Director Dr. Maria Elena Gutierrez. “I am thrilled to welcome Robert Zemeckis to VIEW Conference 2022, and just as excited to welcome Kevin Baillie onto our stage to talk about Disney’s wonderful new adaptation of Pinocchio. I know that together they will knock the ball out of the park in terms of insight and inspiration.”
