Presented by Scott Anderson, Visual Effects Editor
The seminars will be presented for all participants who would like to familiarize themselves with the various aspects of the job of a VFX editor, are interested in becoming a VFX editor or would like to improve their skill set in this field. 
We will focus on the job of a VFX editor in feature films but the information will be applicable to those working in other formats. 
We will discuss the interaction that a VFX editor has with picture editorial, the VFX department, the scanning facility and the vendor creating the shots. Also, there will be discussion on the preparation for DI, final delivery along with workflow techniques that can increase your productivity without increasing your workload. 
This seminar brings the following topics for discussion:
•What are the responsibilities of a VFX editor.
•VFX editorial workflow between picture editorial, VFX department, scanning facilities and vendors.
•The use of databases.
•The pros and cons of a VFX editor using third party software like After Effects to create shots.
•The process of turning over shots to vendors
•The process of receiving shots from vendors.
•Preparing for DI and final delivery.
The seminar will be presented in the form of a lecture with several breaks for Q&A.
