Tips from the VFX Oscar nominated supes for working with directors

Joe Letteri. Chris Townsend. John Nelson. Stephen Rosenbaum. Ben Morris. They all weigh-in in this piece for Cartoon Brew on how they worked with their director.

An amazing part of this piece is that I was able to speak to three of these visual effects supervisors (John Nelson, Joe Letteri and Chris Townsend) at VIEW Conference in Turin, Italy in October 2017. That’s three Oscar-nominated supervisors at the one event (incredibly, VIEW in 2017 also featured the Oscar nominated animated features The Breadwinner and Loving Vincent).

If you haven’t been to VIEW before, I strongly recommend it – in 2018 the conference is on October 22-26. It’s a small event compared to say a big SIGGRAPH or FMX, but this intimacy is VIEW’s selling point. You actually get to interact with the speakers themselves, and they are presenting on THE big films and projects of the year, as evidenced by the Oscar nominees who tend to be there.
