Hello everyone,

I wanted to thank you all for reading me every week and to be so many to follow my interviews.
You are several thousands to come every month from more than 140 countries.
The site has over 48,000 hits since its creation.

I am truly touched that you are so many to appreciate my work!

I am pleased to share the messages I’ve received for this event:

The Art of VFX, a great site for VFX enthusiasts, professional and amateur. The interviews are interesting and highlight the real issues facing the post-production industry. Good luck and happy birthday «

The Art Of VFX contacted me for an interview on the work I did at MPC on Prince Of Persia. I was really impressed by the quality of the questions and the way that they translated it in a very faithful way.
Since then, I am a constant follower of the blog and I am very pleased to see how it has been developing in the last year. The interviews are always interesting to read and the fact that they cover both supervisors and sequence or discipline leads makes it even more exciting, giving us an in-depth review of the work achieved on big studio movies as well as smaller independent projects.
I wish a long life to The Art of VFX blog, and looking forward to reading more and more interviews about the great films coming out this year.

I have really enjoyed reading The Art of VFX over the past year.  Not only does it have great breakdowns and interviews on first rate projects from around the globe, it also doesn’t localize the discussions to specific roles on projects.  The articles speak with Supervisors, Artists, and Designers alike and provide insight into all different parts of post production.
