Making of Overwatch Cinematics 

with Blizzard Entertainment




Location: Star Theatre (Planetarium Level)

Start Time: 19:00

Length: 1hr30 min. with Q&A


Overwatch is an upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter in development by Blizzard Entertainment. Overwatch is set in a near-future version of Earth, years after the resolution of the global-scale "Omnic Crisis". This crisis put all of humanity under threat of the "Omnic" robots, named as such by their very creators because of their artificial intelligence. To end it, an international task force called "Overwatch" was formed to protect humanity. In the years after the end of the Omnic Crisis, Overwatch remained as a peacekeeping force until, under accusations of corruption and sedition, the task force was eventually disbanded.

Hear how the Blizzard team, from an artistic, technical, and filmmaker perspectives, bring the story to life in the making of Overwatch cinematics.

More on the speakers: Dan Cox (Lighting/Comp & Digimatte Supervisor), Jeff Chamberlain (Cinematics Director), Jim Jiang (Senior 2 Rig/Sim Artist), and Steven Chen (Senior Supervisor Cinematics).
