2.12.2014: 12th Annual VES Awards
type: event

As our industry continues to grow and mature, many challenges are being faced and overcome that confuse your perception of the status quo.  What is animation?  What is photographed?  What is created in the circuits of a computer via the artist’s clever mind and hands?  As these and many more lines blur together, the end user of the work need only to sit back and enjoy the story.  But us, the folks that create and drive the machine, that lend our souls to do the undoable, who use whatever we need to in the name of creating and delivering amazing and unimaginable imagery to help tell that story continue to step up to the plate and swing for the stars.

Hundreds of millions of dollars of visual effects work is about to spill out onto the screens before your eyes.  This ART has been created by ARTISTS - STORYTELLERS across the globe and have significantly contributed to the billions of dollars in gross profits generated this year for the industry.  But equally important, this work has significantly contributed to the best, most compelling storytelling in the history of entertainment. Storytelling in ways that were once only vaguely dreamed but have now become reality.

Tonight the incredible work of our peers will be recognized and honored. The level and quality of their art is absolutely stunning - across the board!
But they stand on the shoulders of Giants – one of them, John Dkystra – is being honored tonight.  John is an amazing man.  He is someone we all want to be like. He dreams in reality and makes things – from the first ever computer controlled camera – the Dkystraflex  - to Star Wars.  His vision is unlimited as is his passion.  And his body of work reflects this amazingly bountiful treasure he has shared with us.

So lets sit back and enjoy the display of artistry about to be presented tonight.  Lets recognize that every nominee is a winner.  Lets cheer loudly, heap the well earned praise upon our peers, celebrate and enjoy our amazing artisty and artists!

2.5.2013: 11th Annual VES Awards
type: event

Shortly, before your eyes, hundreds of millions of dollars of visual effects work, created by ARTISTS and STORYTELLERS across the world, that have helped to generate billions of dollars in gross profits for the industry, will be presented for your enjoyment.  But more importantly, this work has significantly contributed to the best, most compelling storytelling in the history of entertainment. Storytelling in ways that were once only vaguely dreamed but have now become reality.

Tonight, you will see animation that is so life-like that many believe the animation artists should be honored for acting. You will see visual effects artists who have realized new tomorrows while also bringing yesterday to life in new ways. You will be taken to places no one ever imagined you could: from the beginning of time to new worlds spanning our collective imaginations. The lines of what is real and what is not is now so blurred that no one can tell the two apart and visual effects artists get all that done before lunch!

Tonight the incredible work of our peers – artists and storytellers, each and every one of them - will be honored. The level and quality of their work -- their art -- is absolutely stunning - across the board! Each nominee has the honor of knowing they have been chosen as a representative of the craft of visual effects to the world!

So, enjoy the show and remember that whatever it is that “can’t be imagined”… well, we do it – everyday, time and again. I could not be more proud to be called a VISUAL EFFECTS ARTIST than I am tonight.

12.1.2012: Event - Understanding Unions The Good, The Bad & Unknown Of Forming A Visual Effects Collective Bargaining Organization (Los Angeles)
type: event
Visual Effects remains one of the few segments of the North American entertainment industry that is not unionized. There has been a lot of discussion on this across the industry on both sides of the issue. The Visual Effects Society is providing an opportunity to find out first-hand what is real and what is false about the idea of what a union and collective bargaining agreement can and cannot do.
 
Join us on Saturday, December 1, 2012, 9:30AM to 12:00PM at the L.A. Film School, as VES presents a panel of industry leaders who have varying opinions on the topic, providing a balanced perspective to attendees.
 
Topics under consideration include:
  • Would the formation of a union better the lot of the VFX worker and the status and health of VFX companies in North America?
  • Is the union an unwieldy structure that would create additional burdens on North American companies and workers in the face of increasing global competition?
  • How would the formation of a union affect run-away production?
  • Can a union supply better and more cost effective health and pension coverage than a VFX company?
  • Will the producers accept the union as the VFX collective bargaining unit?
  • Will a union regulate work hours better?
  • What does a union really do?
Join us on December 1 as six industry leaders discuss these important issues.

a special evening with Douglas Trumbull
and a screening of his directorial debut SILENT RUNNING

2.7.2012: 10th Annual VES Awards
type: event

Welcome to the show!!!! Shortly, before your eyes, millions of dollars of visual effects work, created by ARTISTS and STORYTELLERS across the world, that have helped to generate billions of dollars in gross profits for the industry, will be presented for your enjoyment. But more importantly, this work has significantly contributed to the best, most compelling storytelling in the history of entertainment. Storytelling in ways that were once only vaguely dreamed but have now become reality. That’s what we do!

Tonight, you will see animation that is so life-like that many believe the animation artists should be honored for acting. You will see visual effects artists who have realized new futures and old histories, in ways that make them more real and vibrant than the world we all live in. You will be taken to places no one ever imagined you could be: from the beginning of time to worlds across the universe, from the universe of atoms and molecules to that of giants and the Gods themselves. The lines of what is real and what is not is now so blurred that no one can tell the two apart. Visual Effects Geniuses did this!

Douglas Trumbull is a genius. We have all seen it time and again in his work and his art, in his invention and his passion. He makes us all better for having to measure up against the standards he sets and then exceeds himself. The Georges Méliès Award for Pioneering is more than just a recognition of his pioneering. It is a recognition of a spirit that he shares with the great man the award is named for, Georges Méliès. And no one embodies it better than Doug Trumbull.

Stan Lee’s imagination not only created numerous universes but sparked the passion in many ‘soon-to-be’ visual effects artists. Stan Lee did not only creatively participate in his projects but set the bar of what was acceptable – thus defining the genre. His body of work and creation has enriched the world of entertainment for as far back as I care to remember, and I am extremely proud of the VES for choosing to recognize his contributions to our world!

Tonight the work of my peers – artists and storytellers, each and every one of them – will be honored. The level and quality of their work, their art, is absolutely stunning – across the board! Tonight, each nominee has the honor of knowing they have been chosen to represent the amazing state of visual effects to the world!

So, enjoy the show and remember that whatever it is that “can’t be imagined”… well, we do it – everyday, time and again. I could not be more proud to be called a VISUAL EFFECTS ARTIST than I am tonight.

Universal Virtual Stage 1 (UVS1) is a dedicated, pre-rigged, pre-calibrated virtual production environment with motion capture, camera tracking, pre-visualization and related technologies for commercials, television and features.  This project transformed Sound Stage 36 at Universal Studios into a secure, self-contained facility with a green screen cyc, two editing bays with 60 terabytes of online storage and production office space. The stage, and its technology, is a resource for the visual effects community so that all VFX companies can offer their clients the advantages of a major studio as part of their visual effects package.
“Beyond this turnkey facility allowing clients to walk on to and start shooting, the technology and equipment can be moved to other stages and locations on the Universal lot or the world,” said Jeff Berry, Executive Director, Universal Studios Virtual Effects & Production Services for Universal.

2.1.2011: 9th Annual VES Awards
type: event

The outstanding work you are about to see was created by artists who have dedicated their lives to recreating reality, or creating a new reality, to better tell a story. This field has not only grown into the mainstay of the entertainment industry – allowing magic to be liberally sprinkled on virtually every project, but it has also become the prime money generating force within the industry. Consider that each of the current list of top 40 grossing films of all time are visual effects driven films, earning a total of $34,841,501,183 to date. Thirty-Five Billion dollars of gross cash earnings!

Every story begins with the wonderment of words born into reality by the storyteller: in the entertainment industry it is the writer, the director, the cinematographer, the editor and the talents of the visual effects artists – all supported by our patrons, the studios. These visual effects artists do it not for the love of money, but for the love of the art and the promise of tomorrow. They possess the ability to tell a story, stretch what the mind can imagine, and create a new tomorrow for all of mankind. Just as Jules Verne and Leonardo di Vinci created today with their imaginative works, visual effects artists are creating tomorrow in the same way.

Visual effects is a vision, and we are proud that Christopher Nolan is our first Visionary Award recipient. He has singularly employed visual effects in his films not just in a manner that seamlessly tells the story, but to stretch the imagination and challenge our view of reality. And in doing this he has also contributed to creating a positive view of the future world. He has laid down the challenge with his work and it is up to us, the visual effects Community, to embrace it and bring it to reality.

Ray Harryhausen, our Lifetime Award Recipient, represents the supreme artist who not just uses his talent to tell a story, but who has created the very tools to enable those stories to be told! Stories that have entertained millions and stretched our imaginations in ways that had never been possible before. Ray has most importantly lived a life of selfless contribution and education to the others within the entertainment industry. His works stand on their own for their sheer creativity and also for the pure humanity of his characters.

So sit back and prepare to be amazed and entertained by the most outstanding work of 2010, created by the visionaries who go by the title of Visual Effects Artist!

10.23.2010: 2010 VES Production Summit
type: event

Navigating Tomorrow's Business Models

The Entertainment Industry is going through a tsunami of change. It's almost impossible for companies to know how to plan for the coming year, much less five years down the line. New technologies, globalization, shrinking post schedules and a vast proliferation of new distribution platforms have dramatically affected how to plan for survival and success in the future.

Globally, competitive operations and markets relentlessly push companies to cut costs and streamline their operations while simultaneously producing more with less. And while the expanded use of technology both energizes and streamlines existing systems, it also creates new challenges and complexity that spirals up and down the production chain. Should companies partner with international entities in order to take advantage of tax breaks and lower wage scales? And how best to create efficient worldwide pipelines without always starting from scratch and spending a fortune?

Additionally, post schedules are growing ever shorter and on-time delivery of crucial elements needed to meet a movie’s marketing demands and even its opening date are becoming riskier than ever. With these pressures growing on each and every project, what impact does this relentless time constriction and ever expanding shot count have on companies and artists who work to meet those deadlines and demands?

Distribution models are also undergoing significant change with countless new and shrinking platforms arriving almost daily. How does this impact your business and how can you plan to compete successfully in the future?

These are all realities that are happening now. How do you fit in? Now is not the time to stand still and do nothing. This is not the time to watch from the sidelines. This is not the time to become a dinosaur. How can we get creatives, technologists and those holding the purse strings to work together to create a future for us all?

Get your favorite business model on and join us for Production Summit 2010 to envision the future!

2.28.2010: 8th Annual VES Awards
type: event

Welcome to the 8th Annual VES Awards!  In this room, all around you, are the most creative, inventive and innovative artists in the industry.  The work being projected upon the screen tonight will blow your socks off and melt your brain cells - and it was created by individual artists – not machines, not computers, not buttons - anymore than Van Gogh’s paint brushes did his paintings or da Vinci’s pencils did his drawings.  We are extremely pleased to be able to bring your focus and attention to this amazing artistry.

Our theme tonight is innovation, invention and artistry.  And no one better embodies that than Mr. James Cameron, our Lifetime Achievement recipient.  Jim’s work has spurred the industry of visual effects to heretofore unimagined heights –all in the service to story.  From his humble beginnings as an artist for hire, to a writer, director and producer, he never has let, “It can’t be done”, block the path to fantastic imagery, achievement and storytelling –and yes, artistry and invention.  As such he has grown into a leading light in many industries, spurring others to do what also “Can’t be done.”
Jim’s inspiration has changed the industry on the whole – from the groundbreaking water face in THE ABYSS, to the liquid man in TERMINATOR 2, to the emotion of the sinking TITANIC, to this entirely new world and technique of AVATAR.  Indeed the world and the industry has been challenged and inspired to new heights constantly by this man and that is what we recognize here tonight.

Another innovator being honored here tonight is Ed Catmull. Dr. Catmull developed and single-handedly pursued the computer animated movie – beginning before there were computers!  Tracing his career path you can see his single-mindedness and inventiveness at work – and like Cameron, he changed our world.  The list of his pioneering accomplishments and inventions that have become the very tools of all visual effects artists used today and prove his worthiness of the Georges Melies Award for Pioneering.  We are very honored to be able to shine the light on this man’s pioneering invention and contribution to our world.

So, without further ado, enjoy the friends and artists sitting all around you, take in the amazing works of art about to be shown on stage and remember that whatever it is that “can’t be done”… well, we do it – time and again.

10.24.2009: 2009 VES Production Summit
type: event

Shifting The Paradigm:
A collaborative conversation on production, technology and business in the 21st century. If you are an active and interested member of the production community, we encourage you to join us for an inspiring day of collaborative conversation.

Recognizing the interconnected nature of the production community, and the to need convene as a group to discuss the present and future of our industry, the visual effects society is organizing this inaugural Production Summit. Necessitated by a quickly-evolving world economy, lightning-speed changes in technologies, this Summit convenes members of the production crafts in an effort to create a new, interactive production paradigm.

This day brings the numerous changes to the forefront, presenting a unique opportunity and a novel format to discuss production, technology and international business. Conversations among peers will clarify the process of production and, in an effort to open communication, will examine our industry from a common perspective designed to create guideposts toward the future..

The sessions are comprised of accomplished local and international industry contributors -- directors, producers, art directors, cinematographers, editors, post production supervisors and visual effects practitioners -- dedicated to both their own businesses, and the health of the larger production community. In a day that exchanges presentations for conversations, session speakers and attendees will be seated at semicircular tables, to encourage discussion and interaction.

Emphasizing the theme of shifting the paradigm to create our future, our keynote speaker, Dr. Eric Haseltine -- former head of Walt Disney Imagineering and a technology futurist -- lends a unique perspective.

Location: Ritz Carlton Marina Del Rey. 4375 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey, California 90292

2.21.2009: 7th Annual VES Awards
type: event

We have some truly wonderful visual effects work to honor this year, and a great show to acknowledge all the people who made this work possible. Every year the work created by extraordinary visual effects artists worldwide gets better and better. And this year, the bar has been set even higher than ever.

In order to show you all this amazing work, an army of incredibly talented people, mostly volunteers, has been working since last year’s show to make tonight a reality. If you take a look around the room you are likely to see many people who you know as talented artists. What you may not know is that many of them have volunteered many hours – and sacrificed nights and weekends – to bring this show to you tonight. Without them, there would be no show. Therefore, in addition to honoring all the artists and their work, we also honor the spirit of the evening as we come together this time every year to acknowledge what truly is the “best of the best” of visual effects worldwide.

So, as we get ready to see what previously could only have been imagined, and to have the special honor of Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Phil Tippett joining us tonight, we should consider ourselves blessed to be in this room at this time.

It’s been our good fortune to have a Golden Compass guide us on our amazing visual effects tour this past year.  We gazed in wonderment at the sights we saw as our tour sped us by some really cool Transformers, Spiderman, and Pirates (every one was a real Legend), along the way.  With over 300 great places to see and experience, we barely had time to stop for a little bit of Ratatouille or all the other visual effects delicacies along the way.  And there were many of them to be savored!

This past year was a rich one indeed for visual effects.  In 2007 we were entertained by some incredible effects in film, TV, animation, video games and special venues that just knock your socks off.  What’s even more amazing is that the person we are honoring tonight with a Lifetime Achievement Award- Steven Spielberg- has been a leading artist and innovator in virtually every visual effects medium for more than thirty years, and he’s still exploring new ways to tell great stories in collaboration with all the magnificent artists in this room tonight.

In addition to our many talented speakers this year, we will be treated to the collective wit and wisdom of Academy Award Winners Richard Edlund, Doug Trumbull, John Dykstra, Dennis Muren, Ken Ralston and John Knoll for the VES 50 panel. I’d say that the term “cream of the crop” was invented for this group!

VES now has over 1600 members in 17 countries, so if you ever hear someone ask, “Can that be done?” rest assured, we’ve got someone, somewhere who most certainly can get it done, because we’re the VES and we can do anything, anytime, anywhere!...More

2.11.2007: 5th Annual VES Awards
type: event

Since it was established a decade ago in 1997, the Visual Effects Society (VES) has joined the ranks of the entertainment industry’s most respected guilds and societies.  With 1500 members in 16 countries, the VES comprises a diverse group of artists, producers, model makers, educators, studio executives, supervisors and public relations/ marketing specialists who produce visual effects for film, television, video games, commercials, animation and special venues.  Supported in the day-to-day affairs by an Executive Director and an elected Board of Directors, the VES strives to enrich and educate its members through a multitude of events, screenings and programs, all organized by a small staff and numerous dedicated industry volunteers.

The VES Awards Show is the most prestigious event on the busy VES calendar, as it pays special tribute to the legends and leaders of our field.  Now in its fifth incarnation, the Annual Awards event offers a platform for peers to recognize and acknowledge the outstanding visual effects work of the previous year.  Dedicated volunteers from the VES Awards Committee oversee every facet of the event’s planning, from vetting hundreds of award submissions, and conducting all-day Nomination and Show and Tell events, to producing the Awards show itself.

In addition to tonight’s festivities, the VES produces an annual Festival of Visual Effects, and its partner in the Filmmaker’s Festival in Frankfurt, Germany and AnimfxNZ in Wellington, New Zealand.  These festivals are evolving into must-attend events for visual effects professionals and fans alike.  Veterans, students and the film-going public enjoy an array of panels and presentations illuminating the industry’s cutting-edge techniques, historical accomplishments, and current projects.  Past festivals have featured such far-ranging topics as the artistry of models and miniatures, puppetry in the digital age, as well as detailed “before and after” presentations for such shows as Lost, Star Wars, and Batman Returns (which included the actual Batmobile) and Cars, for which we displayed the film’s Hudson.

As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, the VES continues to grow and support the artists who inspire us daily.

2.15.2006: 4th Annual VES Awards
type: event

Although this is the time of year when awards shows proliferate, tonight you’ll witness something that none of the other shows have – billions of dollars’ worth of the most amazing visual effects you can possibly imagine. In fact, I think you can say that the field of visual effects has truly come into its own and is now a major component in all facets of the entertainment industry. This is because virtually all delivered entertainment, whether it is movies, TV, animation, video games, commercials, or special venues use visual effects in one way or another. Whether you want to see King Kong swatting away bi-planes or to enjoy traveling back in time with the wizards of Guinness Beer, you’ll need visual effects to tell you story.

As we admire the best work in visual effects for this past year, and honor John Lasseter with the George Melies Award for Pioneering & Artistic Excellence and Jim Morris with the VES Board of Directors Award, just remember, if you want to know who the best visual artists in the world are, just look around you – because they are right here in the room next to you!

type: event

This year marks the 7th Annual VES Festival where you and some of the savviest people around will get to see how visual effects magic allows HERBIE THE LOVE BUG to seem almost human, how light-saber fights in STAR WARS actually occur, and how gory forensic clues lead to solving murder cases on CSI.  Our festival is a cornucopia of sights, sounds, and effects – and you have a front row seat!

Just who are these magicians?  They are members of a specialized community known as visual effects artists and the best of the best are members of the Visual Effects Society.  Represented in about a dozen countries worldwide, VES has approximately 1250 members from the fields of film, TV, animation, and computer gaming who make the impossible, possible and who are able to create the most amazing situations you’ll ever see on screen.

Like all good magicians who utilize “sleight of hand”, VES artists are able to create “sleight of eye” in that most of the time you aren’t even aware of the magic as you are watching it...More

2.16.2005: 3rd Annual VES Awards
type: event

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Visual Effects Society Awards – as they say, the third time’s the charm and this year’s awards are no exception!

Tonight we’re throwing the coolest party of the year for the visual effects community. Joining us will be one of the true visual effects masters of our time – VES Lifetime Honoree and Academy Award winner Robert Zemeckis, who has entertained us through the years with numerous dazzling projects including Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, the Back to the Future trilogy, Forrest Gump, and the recently released Polar Express.

In addition, Don Shay, publisher of everyone’s favorite bible, Cinefex, will honor us as the recipient of the Board of Directors Award.

New this year will be the presentation of the inaugural Georges Melies Award to an individual who has pioneered a lasting contribution I n the field of Visual Effects. The first recipient of this honor is Robert Abel, and to pick up the award on his behalf will be his daughter, Marah.

And, last but not least, are the true stars of tonight’s show – all of you. The collected genius assembled here at the Palladium represents the greatest array of visual effects talent the world has ever seen. Without all of you, and the magic that you either create or inspire, Polar Express and Sky Captain wouldn’t have been able to rewrite the rules for filmmaking, Shrek 2’s Puss ‘N’ Boots wouldn’t have made us laugh in spite of ourselves, Citroen’s new car wouldn’t have been able to pull off those eye-popping dance moves, and Star Trek Enterprise wouldn’t always be so entertaining. And that would be a great loss for the rest of us.

So, as we pull back the curtain on tonight’s festivities, remember to suspend your sense of disbelief, because tonight you’re in for some true magic. Please join me in offering heartfelt congratulations to all the nominees in attendance because they are all winners. And so are we because we get to work in the special world of visual effects!

To all who love storytelling and the magic of visual effects:

This year marks the 6th Annual VES Festival.  Over the next three days only you and a very select group of people will get to experience not only billions of dollars of technology devoted to visual effects, but also, the people and stories behind their creation.

As you know, VES is comprised of over 1000 global members who are distinguished visual effects artists and other experts in the field who are professionally committed to this unique industry of ours. 
The Society provides its members with a platform for communication, education, and recognition of the current and future state of the visual effects industry.

2.18.2004: 2nd Annual VES Awards
type: event

Welcome to the Second Annual Visual Effects Society Awards. We are pleased that you could join us to celebrate the visual effects work done in the last year. With each passing year, the bar is being raised. The quality and seamlessness of the work is exponentially increasing each and every year. It is hard to imagine where visual effects will take us in the next twenty-five minutes, much less the next twenty-five years!

Although we may not know where we are going, we certainly know where we have come from and the path that has taken us here. On that journey, there have been many bumps and bruises and failures, but fortunately there have also been many stunning successes – beacons of light leading us all. From George Melies, Willis O’Brien, L.B. Abbott and Albert Whitlock to Chuck Csuri, John Whitney, Doug Trumbull, Dennis Muren and all the other visual effects artist who have been great visionaries to light the way.

There is no person on the planet who has had more influence and impact on the contemporary visual effects storytelling than George Lucas. George has his fingerprints on almost every aspect of filmmaking, utilizing visual effects to enhance the storytelling process. George has written, produced and/or directed some of the most important visual effects films of our era including five Star Wars films (the sixth is in post), and three Indiana Jones films.
What makes George so special is his commitment to evolving the process. Would visual effects be the same if George had not built ILM…we doubt it. Would the 24P camera have come into being without George…maybe, but not now. Would Pixar exist if George had not created it…who knows. George has had a hand in the development or invention of the ideas and technologies ranging from random access editing to digital projection and everything in between. The point is that George Lucas has created with his heart, mind, vision and wallet the opportunity for storytellers around the world to dream freely and know that their visions can become realities. Without George Lucas, the spectrum of choices for filmmaking and visual effects would be far more limited.

George, your personal desire to expand storytelling capabilities “outside the box” has literally built an industry and ignited untold imaginations. We are all indebted to you. You have made that which was once only in one’s imagination…a reality that can be achieved.

It is with the greatest of pleasure that the Visual Effects Society presents to you its first ever Lifetime Achievement Award.

type: event

This year marks the fifth anniversary of VES festivals in the United States.  Last year, VES 2002 journeyed to San Rafael, California.  This gave both VES members and non-members from Northern California the opportunity to experience the festival.  The attendance was great, and we truly enjoyed the change of venue.  As such, VES plans to return to the Bay Area in the near future, and VES is always looking for interesting locations to host the festival.

VES wishes to thank all of the wonderfully creative individuals and teams who have put together this year’s presentations.  These presentations take time and money to produce.  VES understands the scope of commitment that our presenters make to this process.  VES appreciates all of the efforts that our presenters contribute.

VES would like to express a special thank you to ILM, Warner Bros. and C2 Pictures for providing the visual effects presentation for T3 before the film is released.  This is a first for VES and we sincerely hope this will open the door to having other work presented at our festivals prior to the release of the project to the public.  This emphasizes the growing role that visual effects have on contemporary storytelling.

The Visual Effects Society is pleased to bring the world’s greatest visual effects storytelling platform to the Rafael Film Center in lovely Marin County, California.  The Northern California Bay area is, indeed, the home of some of the best visual effects artists and companies whose work has entertained a global audience.

As always, VES presents an outstanding group of visual effects professionals to share their experiences with you.  Last year, when Eric Brevig introduced Pearl Harbor he summed up the essence of our festivals when he said, “We are here to discuss the visual effects from Pearl Harbor, how we did it, the choices we made, why we made those choices, and especially what didn’t go easily.  If it’s just the stuff that looks good and it was easy… nobody wants to hear about it.”  Eric, you couldn’t have said it better.  This is what VES Festivals are all about.

The Visual Effects Society wishes to welcome Douglas Trumbull as the society’s newest Honorary Member.  Honorary Membership is the highest distinction that VES can bestow.  Doug joins Linwood Dunn, Peter Ellenshaw, Ray Harryhausen and Albert Whitlock as our most honored contributors to the art and science of visual effects.

VES extends its gratitude to all of the Festival participants and those who contributed their time and effort in helping to put the Festival together.

7.14.2000 to 7.16.2000: VES 2000 Festival of Visual Effects
type: event

Hollywood - The industry trade organization, Visual Effects Society (VES) has announced its slate for the upcoming VESÔ 2000: A Festival of Visual Effects. This year's event, to be held at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood, July 14 - 16, will feature presentations and discussions about the visual effects produced by the award-winning VFX teams from some of the current outstanding visual effects film and television productions.

In making the announcement, Tom Atkin, VES, Executive Director, explained, "VES 2000 is not only just about rocket ships and dinosaurs. We've become the world's best platform to educate the industry and public about the art of story-telling and how effects artists assist in bringing the director's vision to the screen. In many instances, we create images that don't exist, but, if we do our job properly, audiences can't recognize our work. And, that's the way it should be."

With stellar participants from around the world, VES 2000 brings together leading visual effects masters and their award-winning VFX teams to discuss their artistry. Visual effects disciplines including examples of Matte Painting; Model & Miniature techniques; Stop-motion, Motion-control, 2D, 3D, modeling, rendering, shading, scene building, animation and special effects including practical and mechanical with illustrations of the artist's work and how these elements are integrated seamlessly into the productions.

Speakers include visual effects professionals from ILM, Sony Pictures Imageworks, The Secret Lab and Mill Film with discussions about such motion pictures as "Gladiator," "U-571," "Hollow Man," "The Perfect Storm," "Mission to Mars," "Dinosaur," and "Chicken Run" as well as the Emmy-winning television programs, "Gulliver's Travels," "The Odyssey," "Alice in Wonderland" and "Merlin." Friday evening's discussion of "The Perfect Storm" will be followed by a screening of the film. On Saturday evening, "Chicken Run" will be screened after a presentation of the making of the stop-motion feature.

6.4.1999 to 6.6.1999: VES '99 A Festival of Visual Effects
type: event

A Festival of Visual Effects
Visual effects has developed into one of the most important tools for the contemporary story-teller.  The use of visual effects has allowed new vistas to open for features, television, commercials, music videos and large screen entertainment.  Filmmakers, by using these tools, have been given an opportunity to greatly expand the scope of their visions and entertain their audiences.

Technology certainly plays an important role in the production of visual effects.  Although technology has greatly expanded the capabilities of the visual effects professional, the art of visual effects is still the most important aspect of the process.  VES ’99: A Festival of Visual Effects is a forum for the best visual effects artists in the world to have an opportunity to share their techniques for visual effects production.

It is with great pleasure that the Visual Effects Society presents VES ’99: A Festival of Visual Effects. The Visual Effects Society extends its gratitude to all the participants and sponsors whose efforts have made VES ’99 a reality.  We look forward to this becoming an important annual event.
