First VFX/PDX meeting this Thursday, June 14th

Here’s info from the newly formed Visual Effects Usergroup VFX/PDX

Alright good Portlanders – many Bothans died to bring you this message so huddle up and listen close. After months of prep, the first VFX/PDX meeting is ON like Krylon – and set for this THURSDAY! Numero Uno is not to be missed.

Fred Ruff, Visual Effects Supervisor and Lead CG Artist at Bent Image Lab, will be presenting a giant platter of Bent’s recent tasty work in detail. And as if that wasn’t enough, Deke Kincaid from The Foundry is in town and is going to give us a sneak peek at Nuke 7, as well as Katana, Mari and Hiero. Something for everyone. Need I say more?

Short notice – again, all of this and more will be happening this Thursday night, June 14th, from 7:00-9:00pm, at:

The Living Room Theaters
341 SW 10th Ave

This is a FREE event. All are welcome, professionals and students alike. The Living Room Theater lounge will be open from 6:30pm as well as following the presentation for those who want to catch up & mingle. The presentation is all ages, but 21 & over only in the lounge please – Oregon law don’t ya know.

Seating is limited and since it’s our first meeting, please send a quick RSVP to [email protected] so I can watch our capacity. That said, don’t wait – lock in! In just a couple short days the sparks will fly. See you there.

  1. Thanks for organizing this Fred. When you get a chance, review the “Post Production” section of the Oregon industry directory at, and see if we have your categories arranged in a way that best suits the needs of hiring.

    I’d like to have OMPA support a VFX/PDX meeting and take a few minutes to introduce how the industry directory is used – and may be better used – by the post-production side of the industry.

  2. Thanks for putting this together. I wish you a lot of success and plan to see you at the first meeting

  3. Hi Tom – you can contact me at the VFX/PDX site.

    Chris, was good to see ya! Have been having a lot of fun with AE on this last job, loving that cs6 update.
