Additional Information

Beginning with its very first issue in March, 1980 (Star Trek: The Motion Picture, directed by Robert Wise, was on the cover), Cinefex magazine has been the essential source for in-depth, informed reporting from the trenches of motion picture and television effects production the world over.

Whether looking back on the career of Willis H. O’Brien or pursuing the ever-advancing cutting edge, from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) to Gravity (2013), Cinefex has covered just about every angle of the art and industry of “cinematic illusions” with a “just the facts” editorial philosophy that has earned it the respect of fans and practitioners, alike. Accordingly, the pages of Cinefex represent one of the definitive records of the digital revolution in filmmaking.

In celebration of this remarkable legacy, UCLA Film & Television Archive and Visual Effects Society are thrilled to host Cinefex founding publisher and editor Don Shay and current editor Jody Duncan in conversation with visual effects supervisors Craig Barron and Jeffrey A. Okun.

In Person: Craig Barron, Jody Duncan, Jeffrey A. Okun, Don Shay.
