On January 7,8, and 9, 2005 the Pixel Corps and dvGarage will present Guerrilla Effects II which takes the best of the first Guerrilla FX and then adds what we thought was missing (which required 3 days instead of 1). We'll be holding the event at the Zeum (4th and Mission), right next door to the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
We'll start Friday with covering the basics of Visual FX, filling the holes that most of us have in our understanding of the process. On Saturday, we'll walk through an entire visual FX shot to illustrate how all the technologies fit together.
On Sunday, we're bringing in the Masters of Guerrilla FX to share some of their project overviews with you...
