NTDF 2018 Brings us back to Hanasaari, Finland

We all look forward to spending dedicated days in the calm surroundings of Hanasaari, just outside Helsinki. Very close to Rovio Entertainment actually… maybe some wants to drop by for a visit!

2018 we bring back Producer’s Forum

Producers’ Forum (PF) will run parallel with NTDF and we urge producers to stay and join the shared speaks we are having throughout the Conference.

The purpose of PF is to create a playground for CG producers to meet and network across studies and countries, in the same way as NTDF creates a platform for regional TDs to meet. To co-host PF along side with NTDF at the same location will further encourage and enhance CG producers opportunities to see and learn from the technical side of CG productions, something everyone will benefit from. PF and NTDF will be sharing sessions (e.g. keynote and eye candy sessions) as well as having separate sessions, where each group focus on specific issues relevant to that particular audience.

With an audience of both Technical Directors and Producers we can start talking some serious optimizations of work flows – and this is in fact the core idea behind NTDF!

Looking forward to welcoming you all.
