Welcome to the Winter issue of VFX Voice!

We’re thrilled to celebrate awards season, where outstanding visual effects artistry is in the spotlight.

In this issue, we’ll preview the top contenders for the VES Awards, the Oscars and the BAFTAs. We go behind the scenes of The Irishman, Carnival Row and The Dark Crystal. Award-winning VFX trailblazer Dan Curry, VES and Disney Animation’s Jennifer Lee take center stage in this issue’s profiles, and we salute the 100th anniversary of legend Ray Harryhausen. Get an inside look at trends in virtual production, real-time technology and the state of SFX trends – just as we get ready to bestow the new VES Award recognizing Outstanding Special (Practical) Effects in a Photoreal Project at the 18th Annual VES Awards. Industry leaders look into the crystal ball for VFX in 2020 and beyond, and more.

And some exciting news hot off the presses: VFX Voice has won again!
