Some people new to moviemaking believe that they can’t afford to use visual effects in their independent films. In truth, they can’t afford not to. If visual effects are considered early in the process, during development and scriptwriting, they can help a filmmaker avoid very costly shots later during filming.
This interactive 60-minute seminar presented via Zoom will be educational as well as interesting – and be sure to come armed with questions. Leading this class is Glenn Allen who has decades of experience making and filming visual effects (VFX). He is a two-time Emmy® winner for his effects used in Boardwalk Empire, an HBO show set in 1920s Atlantic City. He also helped edit many of the films directed by Ron Howard, who encouraged Glenn to co-found the visual effects studio Brainstorm Digital. That company has done the visual effects for countless movies, including two recent Academy Award nominated films, Being the Ricardos and The Trial of the Chicago 7.
If you would like to be invited to this free presentation, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and the Zoom link will be forwarded to you before the seminar on Monday, April 25th at 8:00pm Eastern Daylight Time.
