London


VES London is the UK branch of the global Visual Effects Society, a non-profit, professional, honourary society dedicated to the promotion and education of the art. We achieve these goals through events that showcase local talent and unite industry professionals, as well as foster communication with the wider community.
 
For our members, we show loads of free movies in private cinemas throughout the year, many with free drinks both before and after the screenings. We also put on other events, from excellent parties to educational opportunities. All this is to encourage more socialising and exchange of information & ideas, which is what a society is all about!
 
For non-members and prospective members we have a few open events, including our regular monthly pub night and our bi-annual sponsored membership drive party. If you are not yet a VES member, please join the 'friends of the VES' Pub Night mailing list to get notifications of any upcoming open events by contacting us at [email protected]!

Deep learning and the Covid-19 learning curve
When: Thu Apr 16, 2020 05:00pm to 07:00pm BST

Framestore have been ever so kind as to include us with an invite to their deep learning talk on Covid-19. It is being hosted on Zoom this Thursday and is open to all VES members worldwide. Please find the link to the zoom invite below (you must be logged in to see it).

So much about Covid-19 is still unknown, even after months of astonishing global research. In this informal talk, I’ll describe how the open source deep learning community is trying to help answer the urgent need for fast, accurate, inexpensive Covid-19 population screening in mobile, urgent and primary care settings. I’ll discuss designs for a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) for Covid-19 detection, but also I hope to show that each move forward with the deep learning tools we’re making bumps headlong into broad, unanswered questions. Specifically, I’ll suggest the unexpected importance of the effort towards serological tests for those without symptoms, identifying individuals who have developed an immune response by overcoming a Covid-19 infection.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis
Screenplay by Robert Zemeckis & Christopher Browne
Based on the book “To Reach the Clouds” By Philippe Petit
Produced by Steve Starkey, p.g.a., Robert Zemeckis, p.g.a., Jack Rapke, p.g.a.
Executive Producers Cherylanne Martin, Jacqueline Levine, Ben Waisbren
Director of Photography Dariusz Wolski, ASC
Production Designer Naomi Shohan
Edited by Jeremiah O’Driscoll
Visual Effects Supervisor Kevin Baillie
Music by Alan Silvestri
Sound Designer/Re-recording Mixer Randy Thom 
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale

Synopsis: THE WALK – Twelve people have walked on the moon. Only one has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.

Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), is aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, who overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the master director of such marvels as FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY, BACK TO THE FUTURE, POLAR EXPRESS and FLIGHT, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX® 3D wizardry, The Walk is genuine big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds. 

It is also one of the rare live-action films that is a PG-rated, all-audience entertainment for moviegoers 8 to 80 – and a triumphant true story to boot. It is unlike anything audiences have seen before, a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the towers of the World Trade Center.
