The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all segments of society around the globe, the motion picture and television/media industries included. Join the SMPTE San Francisco section for a discussion on how our industry is adapting to changes in day to day operations and workflows, and where we think these changes may continue in the future.
Home to many of the early developments in television, the San Francisco Bay area continues to innovate and enable the creation, production and dissemination of rich media.
The San Francisco section of SMPTE offers a local forum for membership to be informed and educated on the rapidly emerging developments in the technology of our industry.
We are very pleased to welcome De Anza College as our new Student Chapter. Check out the videos on our YouTube page (Link above the picture).

Visual effects and animation have dramatically changed the art of storytelling providing ever improving tools for content creators to engage audiences. More recently high dynamic range technology has provided new capabilities to increase audience immersion in the story. These tools are of particular importance to a company like Pixar which is constantly pushing the boundaries of what they can accomplish in the hands of skilled artists. Join us as we discuss how HDR, VFX, and other technologies are continuing to evolve how content is produced and presented.
