David Morin is Executive Director of the Academy Software Foundation. He is also Head of the Epic Games Los Angeles Lab.

At the Academy Software Foundation, David works for the Governing Board to develop the use of open source software in the motion picture industry.

At Epic Games, David works with the Enterprise team to develop the use of the Unreal engine in the Film and Television industries.

Previously David was president of David Morin, LLC, a diversified consultancy specializing in immersive production with clients such as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Arri Inc., Autodesk, Epic Games, Shotgun Software and others.

David is also chairman of the Joint Technology Committee on Virtual Production, the Joint Technology Committee on Virtual Reality, and a past co-chair of the Joint Technology Subcommittee on Previsualization. David earned a B.Sc.A. in computer science from Laval University (Quebec City, Canada) and has participated in the development of motion capture and 3D software since “Jurassic Park” at companies such as Softimage, Microsoft, Avid Technology, Autodesk and Epic Games. He believes that motion pictures will soon become pure software, and that developing a strong software engineering community is critical to the future of the industry.
