Previs Society Ramps Up


The Previsualization Society, a new non-profit, interdisciplinary organization dedicated to advancing previsualization in feature film, games, commercials and architecture, has launched a new online portal, and issued a call for membership. The initiatives are part of the organization’s ramp-up activities in its inaugural year.

Founded in September, the group aims to cultivate a community for the exchange of information around the previs process. The organization has established a centralized hub of previs content and topics with the launch of its new online web portal at The portal has been built to facilitate the exchange of information, ideas, news and contributions, while also compiling historical timelines, reports, technical documents and galleries of previs work. The group is also working with charter sponsors like Autodesk to produce educational materials.

The web portal will be further augmented later this year with a social engine to enable user-to-user text and video chatting, chat rooms, a job board, enhanced forums, personal user blog pages, enhanced user profiles and more.

Membership already includes a diverse cross-section of more than 300 charter members from around the entertainment industry. As part of its new membership drive, the organization is now accepting applications at the he following levels: Previs Professional (full memberships for credentialed previs artists and supervisors); Associate (full memberships for industry professionals working in conjunction with previs); Educator (full memberships for accredited teachers and instructors); Student (full memberships for currently enrolled students); General (limited memberships for those interested in previs but outside of the previs industry). Company memberships and sponsorships are also offered.

The Previsualization Society’s 2010 officers include president Colin Green, secretary Brian J. Pohl, and treasurer Daniel Gregoire.
