Thanks to your world class work, Portland officially has a visual effects scene. Frightening! At this very moment, with Bent and HiveFX Grimming it up, LAIKA ParaNormaning, Hinge working on a full slate of VFX heavy spots for the summer… it just feels right to pull the trigger and start a user group.
This group exists… specifically for VFX but with overlap into Motion Graphics, 3D design, and Animation… to occasionally bring everyone one together and mix it up under one roof. Critique and promote each other’s work, learn new tricks. After all, if a tree falls in Forest Park but no one is there to hear it, did it really fall?
The goal of VFX/PDX is to provide a conduit for provocative events and discussion that push us forward. Upward. No affliation, no agenda, no paid sponsors here. Just moving images that move us. A casual meeting 2-3 times a year to reflect on the best of the best from the streets of Portland. And occasionally we’ll host an out-of-towner who’s passing through and show ’em a little Portland hospitality.
