Tomorrow night, ASIFA-East is hosting “A Spotlight on CGI and FX Studios.” Reps from five local studios–SpeakeasyFX, Hornet, NathanLove, Mechanism Digital and Framestore–will participate in a panel discussion about industry trends and the types of artists they’re looking to hire. It’s a positive sign to see a CG/VFX event being sponsored by ASIFA-East. These are big parts of the NY animation industry, and it’d be to everybody’s benefit if the organization incorporated them into the mix more frequently. The event begins at 7pm at the School of Visual Arts (209 E. 23rd Street, 3rd Floor Amphitheater). Admission is, magic word, FREE!
