An Afternoon with Rob Legato, Visual Effects Master
Sunday, January 15, 1:00 p.m.
Made possible with support from Technicolor
Rob Legato is firmly established as one of the greatest visual effects supervisors in contemporary cinema. His many credits include Apollo 13, Titanic, Avatar, and The Jungle Book (2016). Legato has formed an ongoing, prolific creative partnership with Martin Scorsese, working together on The Aviator, Shutter Island, The Departed, Hugo, The Wolf of Wall Street, and The Key to Reserva, a unique short film homage by Scorsese to Alfred Hitchcock. Using film clips to show some of the unforgettable highlights from his remarkable body of work, Legato will talk about his creative journey, his pioneering use of computer graphics in visual effects, and the astonishing technical and artistic achievements that mark his work. This will be a master class, suitable and enlightening for families (recommended ages 10+) and future filmmakers as well as aspiring professionals and film enthusiasts. Running time: 90 minutes.
