The New Mexico Post Alliance is hosting another workshop on movie post production. “Digital Compositing Demystified” will be taught by Aaron Estrada, a VFX artist and compositor with over 20 years experience. The workshop will cover the basics of digital compositing and show how Hollywood films manage to accomplish such perfect green screen work. With the diminishing cost of consumer-grade, high-resolution digital cameras and the ready availability of various open source software tools, making high-quality special effects shots is easier than ever before. The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, May 19, from 6 to 8pm at UNM Continuing Education, Room 219 (1634 University NE). General admission is $30. For more info go to To register go to
