In this session on digital crowds, VFX Supervisor Joel Green from DNEG will explore how visual effects can conjure up rampaging armies, packed stadiums or bustling city streets utilising a range of approaches. Joel will discuss how best to combine in camera supporting actors with VFX in order to increase the scale and realism of your crowds while keeping numbers low on set. Something that will no doubt be especially desirable in a post-COVID shooting environment.

• Overview of the main approaches to create and enhance crowd scenes
