Intel said it will unveil emerging technologies related to movies during the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. The Intel Tech Lodge at Sundance (558 Main Street, Park City, Utah) will enable attendees to see recorded short clips of them in 3D as well as immerse themselves in scenarios in which AI and VR play a role in movie making. Attendees will also be able to see ways in which custom animations are built for Shooting Star drone light shows, with hundreds of drones creating art in the sky.

Intel RealSense technology will showcase a real-time volumetric content capture experience that can record short clips of attendees in 3D, creating a digital avatar that can be shared and transported into films.

In partnership with Sundance Film Festival, Intel will showcase the power of artificial intelligence technology in visual effects and filmmaking. In collaboration with human simulation company Ziva Dynamics, Intel will create a special effects experience that maps attendees faces in real-time, enhancing the fan experience through machine learning and allowing attendees to interact with a life-like avatar.

Intel also teamed up with filmmaker Eliza McNitt to unleash the creative potential of her virtual reality experience, “Spheres: Songs of Spacetime,” providing the tools to create a digital experience where attendees will be able to immerse themselves in space.

The Intel Tech Lodge will host several events, including Media Preview, Immersive Media Industry Panel and Sphere Cocktail Party.
