EXECUTIVE NOTE: WELCOME TO THE WINTER 2023 ISSUE OF VFX VOICE!

Lisa Cooke

Lisa Cooke, Chair, VES Board of Directors

Thank you for your continued and enthusiastic support of VFX Voice. We’re proud to keep shining a light on outstanding visual effects artistry and innovation worldwide and the creative talent who never cease to inspire us all.

In this issue, our cover story goes inside fantastical director Guillermo del Toro’s stop-motion musical tale Pinocchio. We preview the films anticipated to compete for VFX Oscar gold. We delve into VFX trends in continuing education for VFX artists, spotlight a global roundtable on the future of VFX and animation, and look at how VFX companies are forging into the future of the Metaverse.

We deliver up close and personal profiles on acclaimed director Peter Weir and veteran VFX producer Diana Giorgiutti, and sit down with legendary creature master Phil Tippett. We profile the Vancouver VES Section and share practical know-how from The VES Handbook. And we go back to the world of Pandora for Avatar: The Way of Water with visionary director James Cameron.

VFX Voice is proud to be the definitive authority of all things VFX.

Cheers!

Lisa Cooke, Chair, VES Board of Directors
