Oscar winners The Daniels will speak on a panel on “Everything Everywhere All At Once” VFX at the Salute Your Shorts Film Festival.


The Oscar-winning “the Daniels” filmmakers Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, also known as “the Daniels,” will discuss the behind-the-scenes details of their blockbuster smash, Everything Everywhere All at Once’s visual effects.

On August 18, the opening night of the 7th Salute Your Shorts Film Festival in Los Angeles, they will conduct a panel titled “The Disruptive VFX of Everything Everywhere All At Once.”

“Our opening night audience will get a real behind-the-scenes understanding of how this film became a phenomenon through VFX,” the festival’s director Elle Shaw said in a statement. “Filmmakers can expand their toolkit with knowledge, and film fans can quench their curiosity.”

The Assistance League Theater in Hollywood will host the occasion. Although there is a limited amount of space, admission is free (the festival adds that an RSVP is requested). Seven Oscars were won by Everything Everywhere All at Once in March, including Best Picture, Best Director for the Daniels, and three acting awards for Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Jamie Lee Curtis (who triumphed over Stephanie Hsu in that category).

The movie received praise for its visual effects, which many critics thought were superior to those in Hollywood productions with budgets much larger than the $25 million it cost to create EEAAO. The movie made over $140 million worldwide.

“It’s a mind-bending plot,” SchoolofMotion.com said of the movie, “made more fantastical when you learn that most of the visual effects in nearly 500 shots were created by a small team of six talented artists led by Zak Stoltz.”

he festival’s creative director, Erin Brown Thomas, said, “We are thrilled to offer this panel free to the public and support truly independent filmmaking.” This opening night panel promises to be a remarkable event. The Salute Your Shorts Film Festival has swiftly acquired recognition for its excellent programming.

The festival, which takes place from August 18 to 20, invites “filmmakers and film enthusiasts for a weekend of thought-provoking and inspiring cinema.”
