VES Production Summit

Next Saturday, October 24th, The Visual Effects Society is holding it’s first ever Production Summit at the Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey. VES bills the event as: Shifting The Paradigm: A collaborative conversation on production, technology and business in the 21st century.

The Summit is focused on looking at visual effects and the broader interaction with the entire production process, a chance to bring people from all areas together including studios, effects houses, supervisors, Cinematographers, labs, film commissions, Directors, Writers, Editors and more. There are panelists from all these areas, and the featured speaker is Dr. Eric Haseltine, Technology Futurist who was the former head of Walt Disney Imagineering and former CTO of the U.S intelligence community. His talk is described as tackling “where we need to be going and Steering – how do we get there?”

This looks to be a very unique event. Discounts are available for members of ADG, ASC, DGA, HPA, ICG, PGA and VES. Check out the complete lineup and details on the VES website.
