THE VES SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE HAS PASSED


Visual Effects Society Peter Ellenshaw Scholarship

The Peter Ellenshaw Scholarships will be awarded to one VES member and one student (either in high school or currently in college) who plan to attend two (2) or four (4) year accredited schools in pursuit of any type of graduate or post-graduate degrees or certificates in fine or graphic arts. Peter Ellenshaw’s contributions to the field of visual effects were primarily as a matte painter and his artistic talent is highly regarded in the world of fine art. For this reason, the education sought by the recipients of these scholarships is not required to have any relation to visual effects, per se; however, that education must focus on some type of visual art.

Visual Effects Society Douglas Trumbull Scholarship

The first of the Douglas Trumbull scholarships is available to VES members who wish to continue their education in all aspects of motion pictures in order to expand the scope of their careers, and the second is for students seeking degrees in film or television. Douglas Trumbull was an inventor and innovator in the field of visual effects. He has produced and directed several projects which included special venue projects and two feature films.

The Douglas Trumbull Scholarships will be awarded to one VES member and one student (either in high school or currently in college) who plan to attend any type of industry-recognized school or training program in pursuit of broadening their skill set in the field of visual effects.

Douglas Trumbull’s early contribution to visual effects was as the inventor of the slit-scan photographic technique. Later, he would break into directing, and finally settle into the production and creation of visual effects. For this reason, the education sought by the recipients of these scholarships is not required to be relevant to visual effects, per se; however, that education must focus on motion pictures.

Visual Effects Society Albert Whitlock Scholarship

The Albert Whitlock Scholarships will be awarded to one VES member and one student (either in high school or currently in college) who plan to attend any type of accredited schools in pursuit of certificates of completion in order to gain marketable skills in visual effects. Albert Whitlock’s contribution to the field of visual effects was as a matte painter on more than 500 projects. For this reason, the education sought by the recipients of these scholarships is required to be relevant to visual effects, per se; however, that education may focus on any type of visual art.

Because Albert Whitlock was such a prolific matte painter, he focused on completing those paintings quickly. He always referred to himself as a craftsman rather than an artist; he continually tried to demystify his work, stating that his craft was something that could be learned by anybody willing to make the effort.

I am just wondering if there will be any scholarships for fall 2012.  I have been a VES member since the begining and my son is now a senior in High School planning to go into a film major.
