Coming out of a belated and unique awards season, this issue of VFX Voice shines a light on the all-virtual 19th Annual VES Awards celebration, including our honoree profile of Sir Peter Jackson, recipient of the VES Lifetime Achievement Award. Congratulations again to all of our outstanding nominees, winners and honorees!
Our cover story goes inside the acceleration of streaming media – which continues to pick up speed. We delve in to the making of epic monster battle Godzilla vs. Kong. We sit down with visual effects artists Alec Gillis and Artemis Oikonomopoulou. We delve into hot industry trends including invisible effects and mobile filmmaking, and go further into the TV/streaming surge with a behind-the-scenes look at HBO’s The Nevers. We bring you insights from effects pros tackling small-screen challenges and the Baba Yaga interactive experience. And we serve up expert tips and guidance from the award-winning VES Handbook of Visual Effects.
VFX Voice is proud to be the definitive authority on all things VFX. And 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.
