FMX is excited to announce an exclusive Harry Potter Accolade.

FMX will host a special "Harry Potter" Tribute in honour of the completion of the series, curated by Barbara Robertson. The series of presentations and panels hosted by Chris deFaria - Executive Vice President, Digital Production, Animation and Visual Effects, for Warner Bros. - will focus on the franchise's impact on global VFX production as well as highlight the evolvement of look, tools and technology over the years.

The "Harry Potter" film series have become an international success since the first release of "Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone" in 2001. Visual effects have played a large role in capturing the imaginative world of Harry Potter. For the first time FMX will bring together representatives from several of the Visual Effects Houses - Cinesite, Double Negative, Framestore, ILM and MPC and in what will culminate as a large presentation on Visual Effects used in each film. This will be a unique opportunity to hear some of the most interesting VFX supervisors discuss their work simultaneously about the same film franchise.

Conference program will be online end of March 2011.
