The Mandalorian filmmakers discuss ILM’s innovative StageCraft virtual production technology, which has been advanced even further for the second season of Lucasfilm’s Emmy Award-winning series.

 Leveraging Helios, ILM’s real-time cinema render engine, the series breaks new ground in high fidelity, real-time visual effects. The discussion includes commentary from filmmakers Kathleen Kennedy, Janet Lewin, Rob Bredow, Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Carrie Beck, Richard Bluff, Bryce Dallas Howard, Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, Doug Chiang, Greig Fraser, Robert Rodriguez, and Deborah Chow.



StageCraft is a purpose-built, production-hardened platform that allows filmmakers to explore new ideas, communicate concepts, and execute shots in a collaborative and flexible production environment.
