SPARK FX 2018 is Coming!

Happy New Year!

2018 is here and we’re ready to kick off our 10th anniversary (!) with a big announcement: SPARK FX is coming!

Taking place Saturday, February 10 at the Vancity Theatre, this year’s conference is not to be missed. Small but mighty, we’re cramming a whole lot of awesome into a full day of presentations on some of the most buzzed about entertainment of the year.

The event will kick-off with a look behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi with VFX Supervisor Dan Seddon of Industrial Light & Magic followed by a presentation from Double Negative CG Supervisor Chris McLaughlin on the making of one of the most visually breathtaking movies of 2017: Blade Runner 2049.

We'll also have a chance peek behind the scenes of Star Trek: Discovery with Pixomondo Toronto VFX Supervisor Mahmoud Rahnama while Oats Studios VFX Supervisor Chris Harvey will take us behind the making of the studios’ recent films.
