A previous “Pi Day” Town Hall meeting was held in March. At that meeting, an estimated 250 attendees participated in Los Angeles, which was also streamed live and involved additional group participation from roughly 75 VFX personnel in the Bay area, 25 in Vancouver, five in Austin and 10 in Wellington.
The Visual Effects Society had previously announced that it would organize a “VFX Congress” to similarly address the subject. But earlier this month VES said it decided hold back after the “Pi Day” event was staged for the same purpose.
