We are happy to announce a tighter research collaboration between the “Advanced Innovation Center for Future Visual Entertainment” of the Beijing Film Academy (BFA) and the Physics-Based Simulation group at TUM. Our joint goal is to develop the next generation of deep-learning based visual effects tools.
The BFA itself is a highly and internationally renowned film school that has, among others, alumni such as the director Zhang Yimou. The latter directed movies like “Hero” (2002), and the ceremonies for the Beijing Olympics (2008). The AICFVE research grou is headed by Prof. Baoquan Chen from Peking University.
