The Organizing Committee of Eurocon 2021 is pleased to announce the Guest of Honor Shun Iwasawa.

Shun Iwasawa is a Programmer at Studio Ghibli Inc. From Japan, he will talk about developing visual effects for Japanese animation production. Visual effects based on scientific models give some reality to images. On the other hand, the effects also need to be flexible enough to render the artists’ imagination, which may sometimes be prioritized over scientific correctness. In the talk he will cite some visual effects used in the production of Studio Ghibli films as examples, introducing the background of the development. Also he’ll introduce some “traditional” visual effect techniques for comparison.

Eurocon 2021Fiuggi, Rome, Italy, from July 15 through July 18, 2021. Registration form here.
