HOLLYWOOD — Peter Ramsey, one of the directors of the Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, will be the next guest at the PreVIEW Conference on August 29.
This virtual conference is totally free and accessible to comic book fans, who can submit their own questions for Ramsey now.
The organisers are moderating a virtual conversation this Saturday in the run-up to the VIEW Conference, which is dedicated to technological advances in the world of animation and will take place next October.
Director Peter Ramsey will answer questions from Saint John Walker, the deputy dean of the Escape Studios Academy, starting at 10 am Pacific Time.
According to Variety, the filmmaker will talk about his work on the film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2019, in addition to other aspects of his long career.
Those interested can sign up for free online to attend the conference and even send their own questions for the director – which could be selected and asked the day of the talk – at email@example.com.
“Peter is a master storyteller,” says VIEW Conference director Maria Elena Gutierrez. “Listening to him speak about his passion for making movies is a privilege.”
Director, artist and illustrator Peter Ramsey has also received a Golden Globes nomination for his animated film Rise of the Guardians in 2012. He, too, collaborated on Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time and David Fincher’s Fight Club as a storyboard artist.
The VIEW Conference will take place from October 18 to 23 in Turin, Italy, both physically and virtually. Specialists from video games, virtual reality and special effects industries will take the floor to talk about advances in the field. — AFP
