The VFX Festival, hosted by Escape Studios, is a celebration of visual effects, animation, games and motion graphics. For the last 7 years the annual festival hosted in London has attracted many attendees and high profile speakers from award-winning studios.
For the first time in its history the VFX Festival is being divided into a virtual series to support emerging talent from all over the world by allowing professionals to share their insights on award-winning productions and encourage collaboration among the international participants.
On Thursday, 18th June at 14.00 - 15.00 (BST) we are hosting session on Creating the dazzling ‘Illusion Battle’ sequence in Spider-Man: Far From Home by Alexis Wajsbrot VFX Supervisor at Framestore. Alexis will discuss the creative journey when creating the dazzling ‘Illusion Battle’ sequence.
About Alexis Wajsbrot:
Alexis’ most recent projects have seen him devise and oversee some jaw-droppingly entertaining cinematic sequences, from the mind-bending world of Doctor Strange to Taika Waititi’s unique Thor: Ragnarok and Spider-Man: Far From Home’s standout ‘illusion battle’, which saw Peter Parker’s worst fears take shape. Alexis joined Framestore in 2009 as a Lead FX TD on Mike Newell’s Prince of Persia, painstakingly creating (and then destroying) the CG ‘sand room’. As FX Supervisor on Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, Alexis lead the team’s development and implementation of new proprietary software. Alongside technical knowledge and true creative flair, Alexis brings a deep love of cinema to his work - a passion which led him to co-direct acclaimed horror film Don’t Hang Up, which premiered at 2016’s LA Film Festival.
