LOOK Effects to Present The Making of "Lost"

Category: News
Hollywood, Calif. - A panel of LOOK Effects artists will discuss the making of visual effects for the final season of ABC's "Lost" on Thursday, August 26, at Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood, Calif. The event is part of the continuing series produced and sponsored by the Visual Effects Society.

The panel will feature Adam Avitable, visual effects supervisor; Melinka Thompson-Godoy, visual effects producer; Michael Degtjarewsky, Digital Effects Supervisor; Max Ivins, sequence supervisor; Rocco Gioffre, lead matte artist; and Brad Kalinoski, compositing supervisor.

LOOK Effects' presentation will address the process that occurred when their team came onto "Lost" after five seasons of production. With characters, storylines, and expectations already established, the LOOK crew had the unusual challenge to enhance the level of the show's effects without undermining the legacy of the series' previous seasons. Panelists will discuss how LOOK provided full-service visual effects, from on-set supervision through delivery of broadcast-ready sequences for well over 1000 shots across 16 episodes--over 350 for the final episode alone, within television timeframes and on a TV budget.

The VES/Gnomon event begins with at meet and greet at 6 pm; the presentation begins at 7 pm. The evening also includes a presentation by the visual effects crew for "Chuck." The event is free, but reservations are required. To RSVP visit: http://www.gnomonschool.com.
