Creating a Visual Effects Category
My name is Ludovic Iochem, I am in the senior management team of a Visual effects company called DNEG, multi Oscars winner Company.
I am on twitch under the name : Keepcalmiminvfx
I have been streaming for a couple of month and are slowly but surely building my community around a Discord Server counting more than 2800 after 3 months (the biggest VFX Discord available).
I am a friend of a few Twitch Streamer, also streaming Visual Effects related contents, review sessions and techniques demonstration like Hugo's Desk, AndrewHogdson3D, STFvfx, etc...
More and more people from the Industry are coming on twitch to follow our Streams.
We are all moving towards the Partnership but we can feel a reason why more people are not joining.
I would like to ask you if we could create a Visual Effects Category, which would allow us to really promote CGI, 3D and 2D techniques used for Films, commercial and animation.
My senior position allows me to bring High end Visual Effects Supervisor to stream some Live Comments sessions night, etc. But we would need a better representation with the possibility to have a dedicated section, ether "Visual Effects" or "VFX and Animation".
Please let me know what you think about it.
I am happy to discuss more.

Would be really great!!
Hi Mr Twitch :)
Could we have an answer from your team to see if this proposal might go somewhere?
Thank you very much!
Good idea, voted!
This is an amazing idea i want to learn about editing and sometimes its hard to find going threw game categories that people are editing
The visual effects community should definitely have a category in twitch. Backing up this request !
Agreed, the art channel itself isn't enough. The variety of artists and their medium is too huge to put them all in a single channel, there should definitely be more channels to choose from. Both for the viewer to get what they look for and for the streamers to get their viewers quicker
This would be amazing!
The community for this is definitely out there!
its a great initiative
Its very important create this! Tks for that.
Please get us this Category its very important for the industry as a lot of viewers around the world could learn from creators like us
