Yiotis and Brandon will discuss the revolutionary workflow that allows for unparalleled creative collaboration between directors, editors, cinematographers, storyboard and previs artists.

The software that changed the way Sony Pictures Imageworks have created more than 15 animation projects since 2008 is now being taken up by numerous animation studios around the world. You’ll be able to watch as Brandon demonstrates the creative and technical barriers FLIX helps people overcome as they create the essence and story of a film in the run up to production.

Brandon has been working in the film and television industry for the last decade. He's done character design, visual development, book illustrations, and storyboards. His film work includes Open Season II and III, Tales of the Black Freighter, Free Birds, and more recently: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs II as Head of Story.
