This book brings fantasy storytelling to a whole new level by providing an in-depth insight into the tools used for virtual reality, augmented reality, 360 cinema and motion capture in order to repurpose them to create a virtual studio for filmmaking. Gone are the long days and months of post before seeing your final product. Composites and CG characters can now be shot together as fast as a live-action show. Using off-the-shelf software and tools, authors Mark Sawicki and Juniko Moody document the set-up and production pipelines of the modern virtual/mocap studio. They reveal the procedures and secrets for making movies in virtual sets. The high-end technology that enabled the creation of films such as The Lord of the Rings, Avatar and The Jungle Book is now accessible for smaller, independent production companies. Do you want your actors to perform inside of an Unreal® Game Engine set and interact with the environment? Do you want to be able to put your live-action camera on a jib or dolly and move effortlessly through both a live-action and virtual space together? Do you want live performers interacting with giants, elves and other creatures manipulated by motion capture in real time? This book discusses all of these scenarios and more, showing readers how to create high-quality virtual content using alternative, cost-effective technology. Tutorials, case studies, and project breakdowns provide essential tips on how to avoid and overcome common pitfalls, making this book an indispensable guide for both beginners to create virtual backlot content and more advanced VFX users wanting to adopt best practices when planning and directing virtual productions with RealityTM software and performance capture equipment such as Qualysis.

This collection of twenty essays originally presented at the Eleventh International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts contains five parts: on fantasists and their work, contemporary fantastic theory and practice, studies in the British and European fantastic, studies in American fantasy and science fiction, and sex and techno-horror in fantastic literature and film. What all the essays here have in common is that their authors are all aware of the tremendous latent power, for good and ill, of the fantastic text. We are given timely reminders of the dangers, as well as the appeal, of elves and how narrators in fantastic fictions take advantage of our desire to be part of a narrative community. We learn how some contemporary fantasists assimilate literary and scientific theory, while others seem in their fiction to require a new sociology to account for it.

Personal, often controversial, glimpses of the real world of sci­ence fiction by some of its most prominent citizens. The book presents a rare opportunity for the reader of sci­ence fiction to share in the creative process with nine highly original and creative writers: Philip José Farmer emphasizes his tripartite nature to bring us to the realization that “The human species is a web of flesh spun by some vast spider. The shaking of the web in a distant time and a distant place trembles us”; Harlan Ellison writes on perhaps his most controversial story, “I Have no Mouth, and I Must Scream”; R. A. Lafferty provides his unique version of the history and meaning of modern science fiction; Katharine MacLean takes us on a wondrous tour of her early life, sharing the impact of science fiction on the mind of a young girl; Barry N. Malzberg combines previously published writings and original material in a piquant discussion of his career; Mack Reynolds discusses his work, his social and politi­cal philosophy, and growing up as the son of radical parents; Norman Spinrad describes how commercial factors impinge upon publication decisions and his own experiences in the mar­ketplace; Margaret St. Clair relates her career in science fiction and her mixed feelings about science fiction and its place in American society; A. E. van Vogt extends a look at the ideas that have fascinated him, obsessed him, and for many years pre­vented him from writing science fiction. All of these authors have been on the cutting edge of change in the field, and each of them has sought to move science fiction beyond its pulp origins.
