This issue shines a light on the milestone 20th Annual VES Awards and our return to the in-person gala celebration. Congratulations again to all of our outstanding nominees, winners and honorees!

To infinity and beyond – our cover story goes inside the new film starring animated action hero Buzz Lightyear. We also dive into TV/streaming, including the evolution of military sci-fi game Halo to the big screen, the rise of episodic TV and a showcase of this year’s potential Emmy nominees. We explore trends in the explosive growth of VR/AR and the new golden age of animation, look at virtual production in commercials and gain insights from a stellar VFX producers roundtable. We sit down with Star Trek: Discovery VFX Producer Kristen Prahl and MPC VFX Development Supervisor Sheila Wickens.

As always, we serve up tech and tools, this time focused on previs and production assets. We spotlight the VES Bay Area Section and share lessons learned from our award-winning VES Handbook of Visual Effects. We also share reflections from this year’s special honorees, acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and Lucasfilm Executive Vice President & General Manager Lynwen Brennan.

Now turn the page and meet the visionaries and risk-takers who push the boundaries of what’s possible in the field of visual effects.

And please continue to catch exclusive stories between issues only available at VFXVoice.com. You can also get VFX Voice and VES updates by following us on Twitter at @VFXSociety.

Cheers!
