VES Summit Speakers Announced
In the Black: New Strategies for VFX Profitability
Carl Rosendahl, Associate Professor at the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University and former President of PDI/DreamWorks, and a notable panel of studio and facility veterans will focus on critical profit and pricing challenges facing the VFX community and options to help companies “get the red out…” As companies continue to pursue options to enhance both efficiency and profitability, they ask – What dynamics are within our reach? Who is leading by example? And how can we chart a course for a more sustainable VFX future without sacrificing quality and artistry? This forum will showcase bidding models with the potential to increase financial stability including fixed bid, cost plus and four walling and ways to amplify transparency and accountability.
Additional updates on speakers and panels will be available soon.
THE 2013 VES Summit takes place on Saturday, October 26, at the W Hotel in Hollywood. The Summit site is live at visualeffectssociety.com.
