Max Liani , Senior Lead Engineer of RenderMan at Pixar Animation Studios, and Alex Wells, Principal Engineer at Intel, talk about collaborating to push the boundaries of what’s possible at the intersection of technology and art, and the ramifications that pervade outside the realm of motion pictures.
