Another year gone by at VFXWORLD (our fourth!), and we conclude with two articles: The Strause brothers take on directing as well as VFX with AVP-R (which opened Christmas Day through Fox), and Colin tells Tom McLean how they were able to improve efficiency. With animated VFX receiving new recognition from VES and first-time Oscar consideration from the visual effects branch, J. Paul Peszko takes a deeper look at three contenders: BEOWULF, RATATOUILLE and SURF'S UP. Plus in the latest excerpt from POSER 7 REVEALED, you learn all about using the Talk Designer Interface.
Again, because of the holidays, the VFXNewswire will go out on Thursday. We wish everyone a healthy and happy New Year as we look forward to 2008.
