The Previs Society will pro- duce and publish information and resources that promote effective previsualization through key activities, including promoting standards, education, workflow development and an exchange of practical knowledge. Previsualization is a collaborative process that generates preliminary versions of shots or sequences, predominantly using 3D ani- mation tools and a vir tual environment. It enables filmmakers to visually explore cre- ative ideas, plan technical solutions, and com- municate a shared vision for efficient produc- tion. Members come from many different disciplines and markets. Founding members include David Do- zoretz, founder, director and VFX supervisor, Persistence of Vision (POV) Previs; Chris Ed- wards, CEO, The Third Floor ; Ron Frankel, president/founder, Proof; Colin Green, presi- dent/founder, Pixel Liberation Front; Daniel Gregoire, owner, Halon Enter tainment; and Brian Pohl, CEO, POV Previs. The Society is open to previs profession- als (previs supervisors and practitioners), as- sociates (directors, producers, stor yboard ar tists, cinematographers, ar t directors, pro- duction designers, editors, studio executives and other industr y personnel) and acade- mics (students and educators). General in- terest memberships will also be offered. Funding for the Previsualization Society will be provided through membership and sponsorship.
