Felix Jorge

I am a vibrant creative with a genuine passion for creating story-driven, interactive content through real time workflows, and making that information accessible to all. During my years of working within visualization and art departments, I spotted an opening in the way virtual production was being applied to animation vs world building, so I made it my business to know the space inside and out. We set off on creating an evolved virtual production workflow for art departments. Grounded in physical production, but with the vision to take it virtual, my team and I have helped define the Virtual Art Department, lining it with amazing talent and a suite of proprietary tools that helped us solidify our influence in the industry. My fluency in the Virtual Art Department world allows my imagination to run scenarios, and provide bespoke solutions with enthusiasm. My attitude and ardor could be seen through my company’s work, and the teams that fortify me, and gives Narwhal Studios a real edge in high-speed Unreal Engine content creation that’s built around the current world's change. Even when the sands beneath us are shifting, we adapt, we float, we rise.

Preparing for the future of the creative industry

Saturday 10/15 2:30PM - 3:30PM Room 204

Wacom, Felix Jorge, AJ Wedding, Erik Weaver, Eric Rigney, Tom Thudiyanpackal

The last three years forced the creative industry into innovating and implementing new working styles, from wide-spread adoption of virtual production to preparing an entire workforce to work remotely. Many of these changes have been beneficial to artists, while some changes have put artists at risk. The panel and open conversation will offer ideas on what the future holds and how we can both prepare for the next wave of innovation and help artists navigate the current reality. Guests include: experts who work in virtual production, a professional studio head who works in a studio that has a remote work force, an expert who helps artists freelance without being taken advantage of, and education experts to discuss ways that we can prepare students for this future, as well as a representative of Wacom who will share the ways technology has changed and is currently adapting to these new ways of working.
