State of the Visual Effects Industry

Tue, 09/09/2014

A discussion on the state of visual effects industry currently, and a look to the future.

Description

Siggraph 2014 is over....but the L.A. SIGGRAPH 2014-2015 season is starting with the event "The State of the Visual Effects Industry" with some great panelists.

As we well know, the industry in Southern California, is in upheaval. Many changes have occurred in the Visual Effects (VFX) industry. Although the animation industry in L.A is still robust, the effects facilities are shadows of their former selves. Our panelists will give a view of some of the causes and offer some solutions to the current state of VFX.
