Welcome to the Spring issue of VFX Voice!

Over the last two decades, the Visual Effects Society has used its position as a convener to take on critical issues affecting its membership and the greater VFX community.

In this issue of VFX Voice, we take a look at “Global VFX: State of the Industry 2019” in a VFX Voice Special Report. Disruption over the past decade has irrevocably changed the visual effects industry, from the point of view of business models, creative approaches, new content delivery platforms and technologies. Since we issued our last report on the state of the industry, we have spoken to dozens of VFX experts around the world. Now, we present an exclusive and insightful look at the VFX industry and the evolution of key trends impacting the rapidly shifting global marketplace – and how visual effects practitioners are navigating the landscape and shaping the future. Read on and let us know your thoughts.

Coming out of an exciting awards season, this issue shines a light on the 17th Annual VES Awards celebration. Get an inside look at VFX supervisors’ picks for hot apps, the arrival of artificial intelligence and a special focus on visual effects in Canada. And we go inside King Kong on Broadway, Dumbo, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, How to Train Your Dragon 3 and “Fresh Spring VFX Film and TV.” It’s all in here.

We’re continuing to bring you exclusive stories between issues that are only available online at VFXVoice.com. You can also get VFX Voice and VES updates by following us on Twitter at @VFXSociety.

Thank you for making VFX Voice a must-read publication around the globe. We’re proud to be the definitive authority of all things VFX.
