Visual Effects Society taps ‘The State’

Papers aim to educate industry on 'crucial topics'

Stepping up its efforts to educate the industry about the practice and business of visual effects, the Visual Effects Society is launching a white-paper program in 2008. Org plans to publish several papers on “topics crucial in the greater entertainment industry.”

The first white paper in the series is “The State of VFX,” slated for March 2008. The paper will look at how vfx have affected the entire entertainment industry and will drill down to three key issues: The eroding lines between pre-production, production and post-production; the new demands on creative pros as these phases merge; and industry misperceptions that vfx are fast, cheap and easy to do.

VES chair Jeff Okun said he expects “This will be the beginning of an important industrywide dialogue led by the practitioners who experience these changes on a daily basis. Key issues need to be addressed now, not only within the visual effects industry, but as part of an industrywide initiative. “
