Eric Roth, VES Executive Director

Welcome to the Fall issue of VFX Voice!

Awards season is in full bloom, rich with opportunities to recognize the artists and innovators behind the outstanding visual imagery that drives filmed entertainment. Congratulations to all of the Emmy Award nominees and winners for your outstanding achievements in visual effects. And with some great VFX-driven films and new TV shows capping off the year, we’re excited for what comes next as we head towards the VES Awards!

In this issue, our cover feature spends time with that creepy and kooky clan, The Addams Family. We go behind the scenes of Stranger Things, Ad Astra and Ford v Ferrari, and take a look at the season’s most-anticipated film and TV titles. We share insights into Disney’s juggernaut adaptations of beloved animation to live-action films and get the inside scoop on facial capture in Avengers: Endgame. We talk light fields, AR/VR trends and starting a VFX studio; survey top-notch VFX and animation schools; profile Anne Kolbe, Warner Bros.’ celebrated Senior VP of Visual Effects, and Jen Underdahl, VFX pro of the Marvel cinematic universe; and we share the VES Section happenings in Washington State – and much more!

Thank you for being a part of the global VFX Voice community. We’re proud to be the definitive authority of all things VFX. Got an idea for a future story? Contact us at [email protected].
