become an fxinsider

fxguide needs your help!

Our goal is to provide the best coverage of industry events, conferences and of course visual effects work. But we don't want to do this by just plastering the site with banner ads. We last asked back in 2016 for your help and we are back to ask again.

Why do we need to do this? With tightening budgets, sponsorship for attending events to cover the industry is more difficult than ever to obtain. Instead of increasing the number of ads on our site, adding obnoxious auto-play videos, or annoying interstitial ads (all of which we hate), we look to our readers to help cover some of our costs.

A $49  fxinsider membership renews annually at $49. You may cancel at any time.

For those of you who are able to do more, we want to say thanks and have a drink on us. While we can't buy you a beer, if you donate $149 we'll ship you two awesome collector's edition pint glasses from which to drink your beer. Your membership will renew annually at $49.

Set of two etched pint glasses, available at higher pledge levels.

For companies, we ask you to consider being primary sponsors which gains not only access but advertising on the site. All the details for our support levels are on the right.
