Loni Peristere at Industry Giants somewhere between 10am and 5:30pm today. "Co-Founder of Zoic Studios, Loni Peristere is Creative Director for commercial, episodic and feature animation projects. He will lead a presentation discussing his work as Visual Effects Supervisor on the film Serenity."

Apologies for late notice... I didn't know about it in advance.

Anybody go?

His presentation was at 11, and it was awesome. He spoke about persistence of vision and used examples from his own life to personalize it. Then he deconstructed the Mule chase and the space battle scenes from "Serenity," which were awesome to see.

I spoke with him afterwards, and I got him to autograph the Serenity Visual Companion for the Pennsylvania Shindig auction on the 18th. He was really funny and down-to-earth, and he was very to eager to share his love of Firefly and Serenity with the Browncoats in attendance. Shiny!
Excellent, Priscellie - thanks for the report! I only wish somebody had video typed it - the visual effects process fasinates me. And I know, I need to get a life!
Eh, gossi, what's wrong with a life devoted to Whedon and related works? It satisfies me quite well. :) I don't know much about the technical side of visual effects, but I can tell from simply watching that Zoic is nothing short of progressive and forward thinking. They have my utmost respect.
Gossi -- I know that the organizers of the event, A Bunch of Short Guys, recorded the presentations. Try emailing them or posting on the forum and asking what they plan to do with the tape.
Priscellie - cheers, I've dropped them a mail. I'll see if I can talk them into selling a DVD of the talk.
