Encanto Encanto

Italy’s View Conference has finalized its program ahead of its 22nd edition, which starts on Sunday.

Disney’s Encanto will be the subject of a virtual presentation on October 22, the last day of the conference. Director Byron Howard, production designer Ian Gooding, and assistant production designer Lorelay Bové will talk about the Colombia-set musical, which is due to come out in theaters on November 24.

This year sees the long-running animation, vfx, and computer graphics conference hold its first hybrid edition, following last year’s all-virtual event. The bulk of the talks and presentations will be online, but some will be held onsite in Turin. Access is free for registrants — but for livestreams only (on-demand access costs extra).

View has built a reputation over two decades for drawing big names from a wide range of disciplines: animation and vfx, but also vr, video games, music, and academia. This year is no exception. Here are some of the speakers on the animation and vfx sides:

  • Mike Rianda, director and co-writer of The Mitchells vs. the Machines, and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller
  • Tom McGrath, director of The Boss Baby: Family Business
  • Jorge Gutiérrez, director of Maya and the Three
  • Kirk DeMicco, director and co-writer of Vivo
  • Enrico Casarosa, director of Luca
  • Jennifer Yuh Nelson, supervising director of Love, Death & Robots
  • Conrad Vernon, director of The Addams Family 2
  • Patrick Imbert, director, The Summit of the Gods
  • Elaine Bogan, director of Spirit: Untamed
  • Dan Ojari and Mikey Please, co-writers and directors of Robin Robin, and producer Sarah Cox
  • Dean DeBlois, director and co-writer, How to Train Your Dragon trilogy
  • Sheena Duggal, vfx supervisor of Venom: Let There Be Carnage
  • Sean Walker, vfx supervisor of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

The list goes on: some 280 speakers will take part in more than 160 talks. To explore the full program and find out how to register, head to View Conference’s website.
