(Source: shootonline.com) The Visual Effects Society announced a number of extraordinary industry leaders are confirmed as speakers for the VES’ Production Summit 09. The industry-wide event will feature sessions on topics including pre-production, production, and post production, as well as creativity, technology and the global economy, from the perspectives of everything from acquisition to projection. The day-long event will be held on October 24th at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey.

Eric Roth, VES Executive Director, commented, “We’re thrilled to have the caliber of panelists from such a wide cross section of the entertainment industry come together for this event which will delve into current and future paradigms on how films are created and completed. Because the times demand new ways of thinking through these challenges, VES is happy to provide the leadership to bring so many talented people together who ordinarily wouldn’t get to collaborate with each other to generate new thinking and models.”
