Don't miss the triple Oscar, triple BAFTA winner Alex Funke in a conversation about what he has learned in 50 years of accumulated experience, right up to the present with Blade Runner 2049. 

Alex will share his fascinating journey with us, and discuss how his work fed the increasing expectation of audiences when it comes to visual effects.  He will show and explain clips that demonstrate how visual effects cinematographers has become ever-more demanding.  

Find out just what it took to create convincing visual effects on films like Battlestar Galactica, Total Recall,  LOTR, and King Kong, and what it takes now - when you approach it as a cinematographer rather than a CGI artist. 

Please register to help with planning.
