Mike Chambers, Chair, VES Board of Directors
In this issue we shine a light on the dynamic explosion of VFX in television driving Westworld 2, Stranger Things 2 and Lost in Space, and bring you an exclusive industry roundtable on the demands and rewards of VFX for the small screen. We tell the visual effects story behind Disney’s thrilling “Avatar: Flight of Passage” theme park ride and go inside Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and the much-anticipated Incredibles 2. And we profile industry legends Syd Mead and Doug Trumbull and acclaimed video game artist Rachel Day.
Check out “What’s in Your VFX Kit?,” a breakdown of gear VFX pros take on the job, spotlights on Method Studios, Important Looking Pirates and the VES Montreal Section, as well as a new guest column, VFX Careers, starting with insights on VFX recruitment from the human resources perspective.
