If you’re a visual effects groupie (or just enjoy gawking at really cool, Emmy-Award winning eye candy for a couple hours) you’ll want to make your way to beautiful downtown North Hollywood on Thursday night at 6:30. That’s where Newtek (makers of Lightwave 3D, the ground breaking computer animation software that started the CGI revolution) will be sponsoring a night of glitz, glamor and space ships. And you are invited!
They did a great job of describing the event themselves, so, direct from Newtek HQ:
Please join us November 10th for an exclusive evening celebrating Emmy® Award-winning artists, producers, VFX supervisors, and studios. This star-studded evening, hosted by Jeri Ryan, features special guest, Mr. Dick Van Dyke; a panel of experts who will discuss production techniques that continue to revolutionize the film and television industry; plus, a very special LightWave presentation highlighting the latest tools of the trade.
Special guests/speakers include Ron Thornton (the great grandaddy of Lightwave, the visionary behind B5 and the man who taught me everything I know) and Gary Hutzel, Battlestar Galactica’s visual effects rock and the man who made all my dreams come true.

And last, but far from least – of course i’ll be there!
