We defeated street fighters, collected gold coins and drove the wildest tracks – what a fantastic evening at GAMES meets FILM at LVL!

This time, we focussed on the rapid developments in the field of artificial intelligence – a topic that poses challenges for both the games and film industries in visual production and opens up exciting opportunities and potential.

The event kicked off with an impressive keynote speech by David Bennet, founder and CEO of Mimic Productions, who addressed the topic of “The Use of AI Humans in the Games and Film Industry, exploring the Boundaries of Creativity, Case Studies, and the Outputs of our Technological Advancements”. Afterwards, our panel, moderated by AC Coppens, delved deeper into the thoughts and experiences of Christina Caspers-Roemer, Managing Director at TRIXTER, and David Bennett.
