Filmmaker Junction and Hype join forces to host an evening of Visual Effects for indie filmmakers in Santa Monica on Wednesday, Sept. 28.
The panel will feature VFX Supervisors, Mark Youngren (Star Trek, The Last Airbender, Transformers), Dan Schmit (Soul Surfer, A Single Man, The Runaways) and Matt Merkovich (Date Night, The Day The Earth Stood Still, Minority Report) discussing the emerging trend of visual effects software in indie film.
The first hour will be in the format of a moderated panel hosted by Andrew Zinnes, and the second hour will be individual roundtables with one of the experts on each table where attendees can sit down and ask their own questions.
The event will take place at The Working Village (www.workingvillage.com) from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
No longer just limited to big Hollywood pictures, indie films are successfully integrating visual effects into their lower budget productions.
As industry veterans, the panelists will share their expertise on how to create these high quality visual effects at a limited cost.
Through a wide range of topics including software packages and effective Green screen shooting the panel will uncover the secrets of indie VFX filmmaking.

We are filmmakers and the creators and authors of The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook series, a series of filmmaking guide books that have sold over 150,000 copies worldwide. It has always been the spirit of all of us here at Guerilla Film Maker to share with others the experiences that we have gone through as filmmakers ourselves and to ask industry professionals and other filmmakers to continue that sharing experience. Up to now that has been with our books and workshops in London, but now based in Los Angeles, we hope to provide the same level of accessibility.
