Welcome to the Spring issue of VFX Voice!

We’re now in year four of publishing VFX Voice and we cannot thank you enough for your enthusiastic support as a part of our global community.

Coming out of an exciting awards season, this issue shines a light on the 18th Annual VES Awards celebration and shares a profile of one of our honorees, acclaimed VFX supervisor Sheena Duggal, recipient of this year’s VES Award for Creative Excellence. Congratulations again to all of our outstanding nominees, winners and honorees!

Our cover feature takes a look at real-time-generated CG humans and their growing impact on film and TV. In the exploding field of television visual effects, we go inside Snowpiercer, The Mandalorian and The Witcher. We delve into the VR/AR/MR world with ILM’s Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series and Walt Disney Animation’s Myth: A Frozen Tale, and go behind the scenes of family fantasy film Dolittle and animated elf tale Onward. On the tech and tools beat, we talk real-time previs, ray tracing and open source software. And continuing our review of VES worldwide, we highlight the VES Georgia Section, our 14th and newest regional hub. It’s all in here!

As the definitive authority on all things VFX, 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 worldwide.
