Welcome to the Summer issue of VFX Voice!

Now, more than ever, we appreciate being a part of this strong, vibrant global community. We take to heart the opportunity we have, through VFX Voice, to keep us all tethered through success stories that celebrate hard-working, visionary visual effects talent across the world.

In this issue, we go deep on the explosion of streaming content, explore the VFX bidding process, and break down the VFX behind HBO’s Westworld and The Plot Against America, CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Picard and Netflix’s Lost in Space. We also get animated, delving into the anime revival of Netflix’s Ghost in the Shell and Amazon’s live-action hybrid Undone. Catch our special profiles of Magnopus Co-founder and CEO Ben Grossmann and VFX Supervisor Jake Morrison, known for his stellar work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In our Tech & Tools section, we look at new approaches in TV VFX and the 5G revolution, and in VR/AR/MR Trends we feature Cloudhead Games on the frontiers of gaming and VR. And we continue to shine a light on our regional sections, with a spotlight on VES France in the City of Lights.

Thank you again for being a supporter of VFX Voice. We’re proud to be the definitive authority on all things VFX. We continue 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.
