It is said, it takes a village to make a movie. The same applies to getting a conference together. Day 1 of the DigiPro + The Pipeline Conference was a memorable one and the chairs, committee members, and volunteers are a happy bunch.
Here is a picture from the end of day 1 check-in of some of the villagers 🙂
Now, let’s wind up the tape and recap all the events that transpired on the first day of the conference.

Alexander Kalyuzhnyy blew a lot of minds while demonstrating the Universal Scene Description-based pipeline that he and his team developed at Wizart Animation.

The first panel of the day informed us how the panelist landed a job that they are passionate about and also delved into what it means to be a woman in the pipeline, amongst other informative topics.

The final event of the day was a Virtual Reception in GatherTown, which makes virtual interaction more human.
Following is one snapshot of a very engaging virtual interaction (which also included some music and dancing). Do join us there tomorrow.
A big shoutout to our sponsors whose support made organizing this conference possible.
Day 2 is packed with more interesting talks/panels and ends with the DigiPro KeyNote: “Protecting Identities With Digital Veils” by Ryan Laney.
See you tomorrow. 🙂
