2005 VES - VFX Festival

I'll be heading on down to LA this Saturday, June 25th for the 2005 VES Festival with Aruna, this will mark my 3rd VES Festival, and I love'em. It's a great opportunity to sit in front of a panel watching some of our industry professionals discuss and showcase their latest work and accomplishments. It's a fun atmosphere to be around fellow industry artists, and industry icons, where you have a chance to interact, ask questions, meet and greet, it's great!
