About befores & afters

befores & afters is a new VFX publication from journalist Ian Failes
You might already know my reporting on VFX and animation from vfxblog, fxguide, Cartoon Brew, VFX Voice, 3D Artist, 3D World and my book, 'Masters of FX'. Now I'm excited to share that I've also launched my own VFX and animation site - beforesandafters.com !

Not only that, there are also podcasts and a print magazine. And you can help keep making those possible here on Patreon. 

What do I need your help for?
With your continued help, I can:
  • continue writing and producing great content for the VFX and animation community 
  • produce the written mag (you'll help cover production, printing and postage costs)
  • attend events where new VFX tech and techniques get talked about
  • transcribe interviews
  • research more crazy retro effects stories
  • keep doing all this independently.

Please check out the reward tiers on the right for how your support as a patron can see you interact directly with me on future befores & afters stories. 

Thank you so much! - Ian
