(Click here for a map.)

Presented by the Academy Science and Technology Council in Collaboration with NASA

Join us for a special public program featuring the filmmakers behind Hidden Figures and NASA “Modern Figures” scientists. Moderated by Beverly J. Wood, the panel will include Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler, writer-director-producer Theodore Melfi, film editor Peter Teschner, cinematographer Mandy Walker, NASA historian Dr. Bill Barry and NASA engineers Tracy Drain, Jennifer Trosper and Powtawche Valerino (schedules permitting).

Hidden Figures, which received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, deals with racism, gender bias, technology and triumph. Set at NASA’s facility in Hampton, Virginia, in the early 1960s, it tells the story of African-American women “computers” who fought to make a contribution to the space race, despite how they were viewed by society during this era of segregation and sexism. The program will include clips from the film and a panel discussion about the past, present and future in space math, diversity and the movies.

This Academy Science and Technology Council program is made possible by generous support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

ABOUT THE FILM
DOWNSIZING imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small.  People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.  Directed by Alexander Payne and written by Alexander Payne & Jim Taylor, DOWNSIZING stars Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau and Kristen Wiig.
Downsizing Opens Nationwide December 22

Breathtaking state of the art effects married with powerful performances and a poignant narrative create a measured and timely study of war and intolerance.

From director Bong Joon Ho, Okja follows Mija (An Seo Hyun), a young girl who has spent 10 years as caretaker and constant companion to Okja—a massive animal and an even bigger friend—at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image-obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja…while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home.

type: event

At the animago AWARD & CONFERENCE on 7-8 September 2017, VFX experts from all over the world will gather in Munich for two full days, focussing on 3D animation, stills, visual effects (VFX), visualizations and design. More than 1,000 participants are expected to attend the events in the Gasteig Cultural Center in Munich.

The highlight of the two days will no doubt be the presentation of the animago AWARDS on Thursday evening (7 September). Chosen in a total of eleven categories from out of almost 1,000 submissions received from 58 countries, the 33 final nominees represent projects created in Canada, USA, China, Taiwan, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Spain, France and Germany. Since the animago competition launched over 20 years ago, our independent jury of experts drawn from the fields of film, development and post-production has viewed and judged over 22,000 works sent in by digital artists from over 80 different nations.

Among the renowned VFX professionals who will speak at this year’s animago CONFERENCE are those artists responsible for the post-production and visual effects for films such as “Piper”, “Cloud Atlas”, “Independence Day: Resurgence”, “The Incredibles”, “Finding Nemo”, “Pinocchio”, “Anne Frank” as well as advertising productions by Adidas, Volkswagen and RedBull. The animago is considered one of the industry’s most important international networking platforms.

In addition to that, the Gasteig will also host the animago EXHIBITION, an event open to the public where companies active in the industry will present their products, technologies and services.

When 400,000 men couldn’t get home… home came for them.
From filmmaker Christopher Nolan (INTERSTELLAR, INCEPTION, THE DARK KNIGHT Trilogy) comes the epic action thriller DUNKIRK
DUNKIRK opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
The story unfolds on land, sea and air. RAF Spitfires engage the enemy in the skies above the Channel, trying to protect the defenseless men below. Meanwhile, hundreds of small boats manned by both military and civilians are mounting a desperate rescue effort, risking their lives in a race against time to save even a fraction of their army.
DUNKIRK features a multigenerational ensemble cast, including Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.
Nolan directed DUNKIRK from his own screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. The film was produced by Emma Thomas and Nolan, with Jake Myers serving as executive producer.
The behind-the-scenes creative team on DUNKIRK included director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema, production designer Nathan Crowley, editor Lee Smith, costume designer Jeffrey Kurland, visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson and special effects supervisor Scott Fisher. The music was composed by Hans Zimmer.
DUNKIRK was filmed on location in France, Holland, the UK and Los Angeles.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Syncopy Production, a film by Christopher Nolan. DUNKIRK opened in conventional theatres and IMAX on July 21, 2017, and is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
This film has been rated PG-13 for intense war experience and some language.

The Visual Effects Society of Los Angeles and The Hollywood Section of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers invite you to join us for this informative and stimulating evening.

 

While you were putting on VR headsets, folks have been figuring out how to show us new and interesting things without disconnecting us from “Reality.”  “AR” Augmented Reality and or “XR”  offer us a new view of our world.  Now with the help of cloud-based supercomputers or new mobile devices with “AI” Artificial Intelligence hardware we will see the world differently.

 

Our presenters will give us an overview of the landscape and technologies, insights into business opportunities, tools you will need to jump into this new communication media.  And some other surprises.  What are these pioneers facing to deliver content for this exciting genre?

 

Southern California companies who are creating content and technologies will be on hand to help us learn and whet our appetite for more knowledge in this very exciting new field.

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 7:00PM
Museum of Art and Design

Click here for a map.

Q&A immediately following with Bong Joon Ho (Director/Co-Writer), Jon Ronson (Co-Writer), Darius Khondji (Cinematographer), Erik-Jan de Boer (Visual Effects Supervisor) and Catherine George (Costume Designer).

For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja—a massive animal and an even bigger friend—at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and selfpromoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja…while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home.

Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises—the bond between man and animal—and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the world that addresses the animal inside us all. Okja, which also stars Paul Dano, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins and Giancarlo Esposito, will premiere exclusively on Netflix on June 28.

VISUAL EFFECTS SOCIETY BAY AREA SUMMIT 2017
Film & Beyond | The Next Twenty Years

As the Visual Effects Society celebrates and honors its Twentieth Anniversary, The Bay Area Chapter is taking the opportunity to reflect on where we’ve been, where we are and where we are going in the NEXT TWENTY YEARS!

From it’s roots in hand made, traditional visual effects craftmanship, through expansion into digital tools and technologies, feature-length animation, cinematic video game content…  the Bay Area’s digital arts community continues, year after year, to be a leader in the modes through which VFX can affect the world.

Blockbuster Movies.  Science.  Education.  Theme Parks.  Virtual and Augmented Reality.  We want to engage in a joyous reflection on our history, and to dream where we can go next.

As such, the VES Bay Area Board of Directors invites local and global experts from the fields of Animation, Broadcast & Film, VFX, Video Games and Technology to gather for this 2nd Annual Bay Area Summit. 

The event will include approximately ten Roundtable Topics to encourage discussion and interaction.  These discussions will include accomplished local and international industry contributors -- directors, producers, art directors, cinematographers, editors, post production supervisors, visual effects practitioners and executives -- dedicated to both their own industry, and to the health of the production community at large.

Come join this amazing event with us and be a part of the conversation as we look to the past, the present and the Next Twenty Years.

“VFX Workflow…Understanding how to maximize for the greatest creative value”
The current environment of storytelling, whether in features or television, almost without exception is enhanced by technologies that lend to telling those stories in visually dynamic and compelling ways, providing both realism and fantasy as well as enhancing the narrative. It is a rare project that does not have at least some amount of augmentation through VFX and some projects literally rely upon the elements of VFX to realize story points. The more knowledgeable and adept producers and visual effects professionals are at navigating the VFX workflow and its impact on production from start to finish, the better we will be able to guide productions through this process and achieve the highest level of creative content within the means of the resources of each of our projects. Join us to hear about: Workflow (script to breakdown and bidding to photography to editorial and delivery), Key Factors to Decision Making (creative, logistic and financial) and various Categories of VFX.

Panelists will include Independent VFX Producer, formerly EP with Sony Imageworks Debbie Denise, who started at Sony Pictures Imageworks in 1995 as a VFX producer, Exec VFX Producer, EVP Production and Infrastructure. Her experience in VFX spans 25 years including as a VFX producer at ILM for such films as DEATH BECOMES HER and FORREST GUMP. Her credits include CONTACT, CAST AWAY, STUART LITTLE, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN franchise, POLAR EXPRESS, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS and the ALICE IN WONDERLAND franchise; Vice President at Sony Pictures Entertainment, Producer and Visual Effects Producer Arnon Manor, who started his career as a visual effects artist in 1994, working on the French movie THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN, and went on to be the Digital Effects Supervisor on GARFIELD in 2003. He then switched to producing and joined Sony as an executive in 2011. His executive credits include CAPTAIN PHILLIPS, THE INTERVIEW, THE SHALLOWS and PASSENGERS; Pixomondo Executive Producer Joni Jacobson is a former Executive Producer and Head of Business Development at CafeFX and was previously Executive in Charge of Production Marketing for Industrial Light & Magic ;VES L.A. Section Board member, Independent VFX Coordinator and former Production Manager with Rhythm & Hues Gene Kozicki, who's worked for more than 25 years as a VFX Coordinator, Digital Production Manager, and VFX Producer.

3.19.2017: Los Angeles Screening - September Storm 3D March 19,2017
type: event

September Storm 3D Screening, One Show only at the Downtown Independent Theater
Sunday March 19th at 2 PM. 

When:  Sun March 19th 2PM
Where: Downtown Independent Theater
            251 S. Main St., Los Angeles, CA 90012
Type: Screening 3D
Cost:  VES Members $5.00

We have been invited to join the LA 3D Club for an encore screening of the restored 1960 3-D feature film, SEPTEMBER STORM. This drama of treasure hunters exploring the Mediterranean Sea was the last 3-D picture filmed in the 1950s, and the first to be released in 3-D CinemaScope. Hoping to impress New York model Joanne Dru, sailor Asher Dann borrows his boss’s boat; con men Mark Stevens and Robert Strauss convince the couple to search for a fortune in sunken gold coins. Director Byron Haskin is best known for the 1953 classic THE WAR OF THE WORLDS; the script is by noir legend W. R. Burnett (THE ASPHALT JUNGLE, HIGH SIERRA). The first feature to include color underwater 3-D footage, SEPTEMBER STORM was long considered lost until the original negative elements were located for this digital restoration by the 3-D Film Archive.

$5 for current VES, LA3DClub members and 3-D SPACE patrons
$10 at the door for non-members (admission is waived with USC Student ID)

Note: Paid parking is available at many parking lots in the adjacent area and street parking is free on Sundays. The theater is also only several blocks from the MTA Red Line.

This event is free to attend with RSVP - do so today to save your place!

 

As ADG member and USC School of Cinematic Arts professor Alex McDowell recently wrote:

"We are confronting change within our entertainment media platforms at a scale unobserved since the early days of film, more than a hundred years ago. The medium and practice of cinema has evolved beyond recognition. And in parallel we recognize the rapid development of other, more recent, entertainment media and understand that it is essential to examine the impact of these radical changes and their potential infuence on one another. There is no longer reasonable justification for considering the crafts of  lm, animation, television, interactive media, and post- cinematic media space of mixed, virtual and augmented reality to be distinct and separate."

Harrison Ellenshaw - Artist extraordinaire who will share his experiences from the birth of modern visual effects. http://www.harrisonellenshaw.com/

3.3.2017: 2017 New York VES Awards Celebration
type: event

Please join the VES New York Section for the 3rd Annual VES Awards after-after party as we celebrate the finest achievements in visual effects artistry - from New York's VFX community to the VES Award winners around the globe.   This year, the Visual Effects Society is proud to present the VES Empire Award to visionary director Darren Aronofsky.  

From his first feature, the low-budget, black-and-white Pi, on through the powerful Requiem For A Dream, the mind bending sci-fi tale The Fountain,  the raw redemption of the The Wrestler, the chilling Black Swan and, most recently, the re-imagined biblical epic, Noah, Darren has never failed to break new ground and has consistently challenged audiences with his visceral style and unique vision.   His unflinching approach to storytelling and bold use of visual effects has firmly established him as an important and influential voice for a generation of filmmakers.  Born and bred in Brooklyn, he has remained true to his roots and continues to live and make films in New York both as a director and producer at his company Protozoa Pictures.   Beyond his artistic endeavors, Darren has also taken an active role in a number of environmental causes including climate change and animal welfare.    It is with great pride that the New York Section is able to honor Mr. Aronofsky with the 2017 VES Empire Award.
