Computer graphics for movies has arrived in Shreveport; Animation & Visual Effects Program rolling at LSUS

The Animation and Visual Effects Program at LSUS will offer a screening of “Silent Hill” in High Def on Thurs, Oct 30, at 6:30 p.m. in the LSUS University Center Theater, says John Miralles.

Miralles, director of the Animation and Visual Effects Program, will give a brief behind the scenes look at the film before showing the film in its entirety. Miralles will talk about his experience being a Senior Digital Compositor on the Silent Hill film, which he said is based on a video game and from the horror genre.

Miralles, who arrived in Shreveport in July, has an MFA in advanced computer graphics from the School of Visual Arts, NYC. He also has a list of movie credits at his IMDB page.

The screening is free and open to the public. Please note this film is rated R.

Yet A&VE needs to reach the young. To do that Miralles has an Animation and Visual Effects workshop to whet the appetite of teens 15 and up on Sat, Nov 22.

There will be a Jan workshop for the under-15's, he says.
