Spark Conference & Job Fair in BC This Weekend


Posted on by

The 2013 Spark FX conference, film festival and job fair takes place in Vancouver, BC this weekend.  A hop, skip and a jump across the border gets you access to a killer headliner lineup including Joe Letteri and all of the lead VFX Supervisors on the Hobbit w/Weta Digital, Scott Ross (formerly of Digital Domain), journeymen Bill Taylor, Hoyt Yeatman Jr. and others.

These are heavy hitters and certainly worth the drive.  Plus, if you’re lookin’, there’s a job fair as well.  Looks like over the course of Friday and Saturday it will catch all of the major players in the Vancouver market – Image Engine, Digital Domain, MPC, Pixar Canada, etc.  I’ve not been super impressed with Vancouver job fairs in the past, they usually seem to just be going through the motions (what’s that aboot, eh?) – but with so many new studios opening this past year there might be a genuine demand this time around.
