Event Details

Now you've shot your show, what's next? Visual Effects Editor Brandon Terry and Visual Effects Producer Amanda Lariviere will cover how to better manage expectations by unlocking the "magic box" of visual effects. They will walk you through the nuances of production after the shot turnover. 

About Brandon Terry:

Brandon began at SpinVFX as a Junior Editor and quickly advanced to become the first ever IO Supervisor that the company has ever had, specializing in editing, colour spaces, formatting and conversions, and workflow throughput. He lead SpinVFX to become the first in Toronto to be fully Aces-ready, and ushering in NukeStudio to the Spin Pipeline.

He is an integral part of several studio processes in addition to his role on the Pipeline Team, including serving as a member of the Production Team, Digital Security Team, the Editorial Department and as a content lead on the Marketing Team.

Brandon’s role requires him to have a hand in almost every single production that comes through the studio. Since he joined Spin, some of his credits include Game of Thrones SIII, Star Trek Discovery and the film Underworld: Awakening (2012). 

About Amanda Lariviere: 

A graduate of Humber College’s Film & Television Production Program, Amanda has had a varied career in the film industry. Beginning as an on-set worker in the camera department, Amanda was able to develop her knowledge of the practical capabilities, as well as the limitations, of a film production.

This experience positioned her well for her first foray in to VFX production, starting in 2005. Amanda served as a commercial VFX Producer, working on a variety of high profile television advertising campaigns, including several Super Bowl commercials.

She later moved in to VFX production for feature films and television, with her early credits including Inside the Mind of Leonardo (2013), a stereoscopic feature.

Since joining SpinVFX, Amanda has delivered Disney’s Descendents 2 (2017), and The Expanse SIII (2018) for the Syfy Network.
