The line-up for the day features political Spanish figure, Borja Adsuara from discussing the country's performance-leading technology that is having a profound influence in the market. Borja states "We are honoured to take part in this event, which is a testimony to Spanish technology in a highly competitive arena, where Mistika is now involved in eminent projects worldwide. SGO is a small company from Madrid and has successfully achieved to introduce its Mistika post production software to a rapid-paced industry which is readily embracing it. SGO exemplifies the fact that growth is possible, even in the most challenging of circumstances."

Other exciting presentations will be introduced by the CEO of SGO, Miguel Angel Doncel, which includes Identity FX's Stereoscopic Supervisor, Leo Vezzali who worked his magic using Mistika on stunning Stereo 3D movies The Amazing Spiderman and Prometheus in L.A. He will elaborate on the challenges Mistika helped him overcome and his views on the controversial 2D to 3D conversion topic. Talented European colourist, Sergio Ochoa used Mistika at Paris' Digimage on the new Asterix movie titled Asterix & Obelix: On Her Majesty's Service, and will illustrate how SGO's technology aided the production and post production phases in the mammoth project. Lead VFX Stereographer, Paco Ramos at BSkyB (British Sky Broadcasting Corporation) will also present his pertinent views on Stereo 3D and the broadcasting business.

The event also aims to transform the stereotypical perception that poorly made stereoscopic 3D has made and help to significantly raise the profile of high quality Stereo 3D. Miguel encourages all artists to attend and enthuses "If you want to approach the third dimension in a fun-packed afternoon of really interesting and current content, then don't miss out. Our guests will enlighten us about the vision for the U.S. and European markets and provide useful clues about the future of 3D visual literacy and its use as an innovative story-telling tool."
