Summer 2024

Welcome to the Summer 2024 issue of VFX Voice!

Kim Davidson, Chair, VES Board of Directors

Nancy Ward, VES Executive Director

Thank you for being a part of the global VFX Voice community. We’re proud to be the ultimate source for everything VFX.

In this issue, our cover story ventures into The Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, the fourth installment in the acclaimed Planet of the Apes reboot franchise. We go behind the scenes of dystopian film Civil War and the animated coming-of-age sequel Inside Out 2 and delve into Iwájú, a new streamer set in a futuristic Lagos, Nigeria. We explore the art and craft of creature designers, glimpse into the XR future of video games and herald ‘The Age of the Storyteller’ calling for high-quality VFX. VFX Voice explores the debate about Invisible CGI, looks at the rise of LED volumes in our virtual production feature and shines a light on VFX in Europe and the VES France Section.

We highlight the contenders for the 76th Emmy Awards and share personal profiles of VFX Supervisor Pablo Helman and this year’s VES Awards special honorees – sci-fi icon and VES Award for Creative Excellence recipient William Shatner and acclaimed Producer/VFX Producer Joyce Cox, VES, recipient of the VES Lifetime Achievement Award. And more!

Dive in and meet the innovators and risk-takers who push the boundaries of what’s possible to advance the field of visual effects.
