The Previsualization Society announces Previs 2010, the organization's inaugural event in Los Angeles scheduled for May 8.

The event is open to Previsualization Society members as well as non-members.

The program will highlight recent motion picture previs, as well as feature a Round Table Forum that promotes interdisciplinary group discussions. The Forum will encourage conversation and input from all vantage points of pre-production, production and post production with an emphasis on previs in relationship to the creative process.

We expect it to offer new cross-disciplinary perspectives with attendees connecting directly with peers and experts in such fields as cinematography, production design, visual effects and editorial.”
