This year BFX is proud to announce that we will be having Dave Throssell of Fluid Pictures as this year’s Keynote Speaker on Tuesday 3rd October

Dave’s talk will take a wider and more pragmatic view of the VFX industry and help remind us that we are at heart a service industry. In doing so he’ll hope to re-introduce us to that much maligned and misunderstood character; The Client.

“I can’t wait the BFX festival, which is always a standout event in the Visual Effects calendar. This year I’m looking forward to use my keynote address to talk about the business end of VFX which is often neglected and how client relations are changing as we move from Soho back streets to a truly global industry.”
