A Conversation with Writer, Director and Filmmaker Tim Greene
In this episode, I have a conversation with Writer and Director Tim Greene all about the world of previz (previsualization) and its transformation in the age of cutting-edge technologies like Unreal Engine and AI.
Join us as we explore the intersection of creativity and technology, discovering how previz has evolved over the years. We start with a discussion around Unreal Engine including the advantages it offers in terms of visualizing complex scenes, creating realistic environments, and testing different camera angles and lighting setups, which enable filmmakers to iterate, experiment, and refine their creative visions like never before.
We then explore the role of AI in automating certain aspects of the filmmaking process, such as generating detailed storyboards, animatics, and even character movements.
