VFX Industry - I don't know if you peeps are aware of what happened in the Oscars and with R&H's bankruptcy and DreamWorks' layoffs. I don't want to be to political here, but I just want to say that I support all the VFX artist in struggle and I'm sure wheels got moving and the industry will be a better place for all of us in a few years. It's time we are acknowledged as artists and not technicians. Green Screen power! :)
And to end up, I'd like to share the pleasure of attending my first real high-end VFX live talk, with Afonso Salcedo (Pixar, DreamWorks) the most successful Portuguese VFX artist! His talk was very interesting and mostly inspiring. He analyzed some shots from the coolest movies, such as Up, Toy Story 3, Ratatouille, Wall-e, La Luna, etc. It was a shame that he had only an hour of stage time, but the Q&A session that followed was rad. Met some cool people and got to see again some old ones!
Afonso is now building his own studio, check it out here! Sutro Studios LLC
That is all! Don't try this at home, kids!
Oh and by the way, meet the new family member, Bolt. This is when he first saw me (I was in Barcelona).
