VES Society to present Production Summit 09

One-day event scheduled for Oct 24 in Marina del Rey

The Visual Effects Society will present Production Summit 09, bringing together an international group of directors, producers, cinematographers, editors, technologists and visual effects leaders, on Oct. 24 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey.

"Because the entertainment industry is changing so rapidly -- on the creative, technological and business fronts -- we're bringing together all industry stakeholders to discuss the challenges we all face in looking at our entertainment future," VES exec director Eric Roth said.

Sessions will include: "Through the Kaleidoscope," three interactive one-hour sessions offering a multifaceted examination of pre-production, production and post production; "XRay: Surviving (and thriving in) the Post Production Pipeline in the 21st Century"; and "Hot, Flat and (getting) Crowded: The Business of Production and the new Global Economy."
