March meeting: Spotlight on local talent Eric Bacus VFX artist!

Another new location in KC!

Major thanks to Bill Krzyzanowski for opening his studio to us!
Krzyz Studio
1800 Locust, Kansas City, MO (

6:00 – Doors open! This is our half hour social hour where Kyle, myself and a few brutes help unload some chairs *smile*

6:30 – Meeting begins

6:30-6:45ish Introductions and housekeeping. CreateNow event will be our April meeting. News will be a minimum because NAB is next month and we will be dedicating a portion of the meeting to discuss the chroma green Facebook profiles you have been seeing.

Our guest speakers: Eric Bacus & Sean Joseph

Eric & Sean are KC-based visual effects artists, compositors and 3d artists. In their 5 & 6 years respectively at Branit VFX, they've worked on high-end visual effects shots for shows like Lost, Breaking Bad, Person of Interest, Alcatraz, Fringe, and Revolution. (What's that? One of their shots was nominated for an Emmy? Sounds like a meeting not to miss.)

We will also have an open forum led by Eric and Kyle about the current state of Hollywood and the VFX community.

8:30 - Door prizes! Current list:
$500 at Artbeats! Three books. Subjects: Editing, Writing, Directing. Hopefully a few more!

See you there!!

    If you've been *MEANING* to get to one of these and just haven't found the time, this would be a good meeting to make. We've just added a second guest speaker, and these guys do some amazing stuff. Did you know that high-end VFX work was happening in KC?
