I listen to a recording regarding the future of the VFX industry, given by Industry giant Scott Ross, co-founder and former CEO of Digital Domain, at FMX2011. It was broken up into 5 parts and can be found here: The Future of the VFX Industry
Interesting to hear about where the industry has been and where its going. It was encouraging to hear him speak about how the top 20 all time movie blockbusters have been driven by content creators and not famous actors.
There was also a great quote mentioned about how art and business co-exist:
“The art is is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work” – Oscar Wilde
