Matt Welford began his career in the visual effects in 1999 at Mill Film as digital compositor. He then worked in many studios such as Weta Digital, MPC, Sony Pictures Imageworks before joining Pixomondo in 2017. As a VFX Supervisor, he took care of the effects of many movies like THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF DAWN TREADER, GREEN LANTERN and AMERICAN SNIPER.
Yesterday marked the first day of Adobe MAX 2020, this year taking place entirely online and free to access for all. I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to cover the event the past two years and this time was no different (although obviously, from the comfort of my apartment).
Long-time VFX supervisors join studio’s Los Angeles and Vancouver offices, respectively; company bolsters team to deliver upcoming projects including ‘Eternals;’ ‘The Suicide Squad;’ ‘The Batman;’ ‘Lisey’s Story;’ ‘Fengshen Trilogy;’ ‘The Jade Earring;’ and ‘The Nevers.’
Adobe MAX is here so that must mean another update to Adobe Premiere Pro. I know what you’re thinking… didn’t Adobe just have a big update? Yes, they did, the September release. With that release, we got Scene Edit Detection and some new beta stuff. This MAX release gives us more beta stuff and some early access. I guess technically this isn’t a new release of the shipping version then and more of a look at features down the road.
VIEW Conference has just announced that its 2020 Visionary Award is being presented to Industrial Light & Magic senior VFX supervisor and creative director, Dennis Muren, who will participate in his own keynote Q&A on the conference’s final day. Part of the core visual effects team that worked on the original Star Wars, Muren was at the forefront of the digital effects revolution with his groundbreaking work on The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Jurassic Park. At ILM, the nine-time Oscar winner continues to steer the evolution of the company while championing new effects techniques and technologies.
Industrial Light & Magic’s Dennis Muren will receive the VIEW Conference’s 2020 Visionary Award during this year’s event, which is taking place both in-person in Turin, Italy, and virtually.
