Coming out of a much-anticipated awards season, this issue of VFX Voice shines a light on the 21st Annual VES Awards gala. Congratulations again to all of our outstanding nominees, winners and honorees.

This issue delves into TV/streaming and the juggernaut HBO series The Last of Us and goes inside the big-screen VFX of Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Blockbuster Indian Telugu-language action epic RRR – named for the Tollywood star power behind the film – is central to our cover story on the surge of global film production captivating audiences worldwide. We explore trends in AI’s creative advancement and showcase booming activity in virtual production – LED stages, creative storytelling solutions and an industry roundtable on what comes next in this dynamic space. We shine a light on building the pipeline of the next generation of VFX talent. And VFX Voice sits down with VR pioneer Dr. Jacquelyn Ford Morie and award-winning production visionary Paul Debevec for up close and personal profiles.

We serve up insightful guidance from our award-winning VES Handbook of Visual Effects and put our New York Section in the spotlight. And, of course, please enjoy our VES Awards photo gallery, featuring the winners in 25 categories of visual effects excellence, show highlights, our VES Lifetime Achievement Award honoree, acclaimed producer-writer Gale Anne Hurd, and VES Board of Directors Award honoree, former VES Executive Director Eric Roth.

Dive in and meet the visionaries and risk-takers who advance the field of visual effects.

Cheers!
