VFX of the Guardians of the Galaxy panel

October 28, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm



Join us for our VFX panel featuring top visual effects from Marvel, Method Studios, and more, that worked on Guardians of the Galaxy. Guardians of the Galaxy is the #1 film of 2014 with more than $327M domestic and $700M international, and growing.  Audiences instantly relate to and love Rocket and Groot, two of the five main characters who are VFX.  In addition, VFX transported viewers halfway across the galaxy to other worlds including Xandar, Morag, Sanctuary, introduced the imposing Thanos, and showed the mighty power of the Infinity Stone.

Join our panel with VFX experts who worked on the film to learn about the VFX process on the film, and celebrate the many visual effects contributions by studios in LA that worked on the film to make it such a national and worldwide phenomenon.

Background: There’s an excellent write up of VFX of Guardians in the VFX Guide, which we can elaborate on.

9p – 10:30p.  Our pre-Halloween Guardians-themed cocktails includes pina coladas, mini-cupcake cherry bombs, and pouring blue liquid into our bodies. We’ll play the Guardians soundtrack, and create a dance floor for a dance-off bro, and so you can show off your best Grooting dance. Strongly encouraged to dress up in a Guardians T-shirt (available at Aahs or Disneyland), Guardians costume, or some Guardians accessories for fun Guardians pics! If you want to paint yourself blue, green, pink, or yellow, massive bonus points!

Afterwards, we will rally a crew to go see a 10p-ish Guardians of the Galaxy at the Chinese Theater next door
