The Best VFX Hot Sheet

Get Your Daily Feed…It’s Worth It

Sure you can have a Google alert come your way for the VFX news of the day, but the best “Hot Sheet” out there is ILM model/monster maker Howie Weed’s Worth a Mention.  I am not sure how he gets the information, but it is more extensive than standard searches, and nicely and simply put together.  Many of us in the industry read it every day he makes it. There are a few collections of this mini email blast out in the ether, but if you know the right folks, and get referred to his list it comes to your mailbox every morning.  Likely a labor of love at first, it is one of the best places to get the latest VFX news skimmed off the internet.

To misquote Men In Black: “Sure, read the New York times, they get lucky every now and then.”

This isn’t just a big tease, as I cannot provide any link, but it is a challenge and scavenger hunt to get into the email stream.  Good luck seekers of knowledge.  Find your source and order Worth A Mention.

Howie as the Wampa in The Empire Strikes Back Special Edition
…and as Vigo The Carpathian in Ghostbusters II. Would you trust him with your email address?



Note:  The Worth A Mention eBlast officially ended its run on August 25, 2015 with these words:

“It’s been my pleasure to send out WAM for the last 10 years or so, but as with all projects, there is an end.  Everyone take care and I’m sure I’ll see you at the movies.  Or, at least, I will see your amazing work up on the silver screen.  Cheers and best wishes!  -Howie”

Thanks Howie!
Thanks Howie!
