Mark Deridder is a SEMAFX alum, now working on the top video games “Call of Duty” at his company Infinity Ward!
Mark is going to call in and discuss his career (so far). This will be an interesting look at game design from one of our favorite sons! Please join is IN PERSON at Stage 3 in Warren- or try to join our Hangout online. You’ll have to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (or text Scott) to ask to join the hangout.
This is our first attempt at doing a hangout, so help me get this thing going! If you’ve ever done one, please lend a hand.
Next time will run smoother. Luckily, Mark is very patient and understanding of me and my attempts to connect people- and this is new to me, but seems like a cool thing to add to our toolbox.

Last night we gathered at Stage 3 for a joint Holiday party, celebrating talent, creativity and a shared passion for our community! I was so happy to see so many dear old friends whom I haven’t seen in many years!
The conversations were dripping with ideas, visions and potential! It became obvious that we all share a feeling of destiny.. that our local animation industry is on the verge of something big- mostly because the SEMAFX movers and shakers who hung out in the kitchen last night are willing it so. We have that kind of power… Or at least power of will. We are planning a big 2014, and I encourage you to join SEMAFX on our road to destiny.
Merry Christmas… And we know it’s going to be an amazing New Year!
We are in need of a SFX artist who can use after effects to help speed along our 911 Ghost project. The effects shouldn’t take much time but we need them done asap! I’ve started and have had some success, but I can’t help but thinking there is someone out there who is better than me who could make the effects even better. I’ve gotten help from a new member who did an awesome job but he is no longer available. If you are into making demon faces and cracking mirrors in post please don’t hesitate to contact me, Thanks, Tonya Orora Filmmakers Co-organizer
