First VFX/PDX meeting this Thursday, June 14th


Posted on by

Fred/DekeAlright good Portlanders – many Bothans died to bring you this message so huddle up and listen close. After months of prep, the first VFX/PDX meeting is ON like Krylon – and set for this THURSDAY! Numero Uno is not to be missed.

Fred Ruff, Visual Effects Supervisor and Lead CG Artist at Bent Image Lab, will be presenting a giant platter of Bent’s recent tasty work in detail. And as if that wasn’t enough, Deke Kincaid from The Foundry is in town and is going to give us a sneak peek at the next major release of Nuke, as well as Katana, Mari and Hiero. A little something for everyone. Need I say more?

Short notice – again, all of this and more will be happening this Thursday night, June 14th, from 7:00-9:00pm, at:

The Living Room Theaters
341 SW 10th Ave

With the help of the Oregon Film Commission and The Foundry, this is a FREE event. All are welcome, professionals and students alike. The Living Room Theater lounge will be open from 6:30pm as well as following the presentation for those who want to catch up & mingle. The presentation is all ages, but 21 & over only in the lounge please – Oregon law don’t ya know.

Seating is limited and since it’s our first meeting, please send a quick RSVP to so I can watch our capacity. That said, don’t wait – lock in! In just a couple short days the sparks will fly. See you there.

It’s Alive!

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.

If you like what you hear, sign up for the email list and stay tuned as things develop.
