Motion Graphics & Visual Effects

The first in a series of new channels we’re launching.

We’re very proud of the line-up of users and experts we have writing for PVC. However, not all potential writers have the time to fill an entire channel of their own. Therefore, in the coming weeks we’ll be launching a series of “themed” channels, each containing a rotating cast of several additional writers.

The first such new channel is Motion Graphics & Visual Effects. Among the writers we have slated to share their expertise are:

John Dickinson of Motionworks

Jonas Hummelstrand of General Specialist

Alan Shisko of Motion Graphics ‘n Such

Mark Spencer of All About Motion

David Torno of AE I Owe You

All of these guys are well-known users in the community, and as witnessed by the above sites, have already been sharing information with others. We’re happy to have them sharing information with you up here on PVC.

Additional channels we have planned include Editing & Post Production, Cameras, Lights, Action, and Web Video & Beyond.

If you are interested in writing for PVC, please contact me at cmeyer @ this site’s domain. Tell me your expertise, what you’re interested in writing about, and show me a few examples of your writing. If you’re accepted, you’ll share in the ad revenue generated by PVC based on your traffic. Help us make PVC an even better resource for all who visit.

Best Regards –
