World-Building in Movies – A Conversation with Maere Studios
Virtual Webinar Via Zoom – Free for Members

6:00 – 7:30 pm
By their very nature, filmmakers are innovators, forced to find creative solutions to environments that don’t support their vision. And when they can’t change their environment in the moments after they call “ACTION,” filmmakers turn to visual effects professionals to help them combat everything from weather to lighting – or even physics – in order to immerse audiences into worlds that are only possible on screen. Post-production, computer-generated imaging is nearly as important now in the movies as the actors themselves.
The Bruce Museum invites you to learn from pioneering industry innovators David Ross and Nicholas Ashe Bateman as they share the ways in which they’ve joined artistry, technology, and storytelling to create worlds and characters beyond a filmmaker’s lens.
Nicholas Ashe Bateman is a writer, director, and visual artist from Baltimore, Maryland. His acclaimed directorial debut The Wanting Mare was released theatrically in 2021. In addition to his own films, he is the founder of Maere Studios, an award-winning visual effects and design company behind films such as The Green Knight, Peter Pan & Wendy, Hocus Pocus 2, and many others.
David A. Ross is a director of photography, producer, and photographer from Union County, New Jersey. His recent works include The Wanting Mare and Father John Misty: Funny Girl. He is a co-founder of Maere Studios, an award-winning visual effects and design company behind films such as The Green Knight, Peter Pan & Wendy, Hocus Pocus 2, and many others.
