But don’t think we’ll stop there! We plan to bring you the best of the best from beyond our humble abode. We’ll also include work from our ever-growing family of creative contributors, and our own staff’s highest recommendations of the cool stuff we love.

To celebrate the launch of our new Get Creative feature we figured what better way than US giving all of YOU a ‘feature-warming’ gift. We know a lot of our fans haven’t been around since Visionary launched, and many of you all out there may not even remember our previous digital publishing initiative where we released over 70 issues into the digital market. Since we plan to relaunch that initiative later this year, we thought it a great time to reintroduce some of our classics – for FREE!

Simply click on the links below to be taken to each book’s order page on Drive-Thru Comics, the original digital comic source. Like what you see? You can find even more titles on sale now below!

Weekly Visions 1.12.17: Smithsonian IMAX & Visionary Films

Get CreativeVisionary Creative Services is proud to announce a fun new partnership with the Smithsonian IMAX Theaters to launch our new Get Creative initiative! As part of our weekly celebration of the arts, every Tuesday, Visionary will be promoting all the great new releases and special showings at the absolute best IMAX theaters in the entire DC metro area. With the largest screens (six stories tall), laser projection, high digital picture resolution and sound, Smithsonian IMAX gives you the best movie experience you can find.

Not only that but for the same price, or cheaper than what you would pay anywhere else, you’re then supporting all the other excellent work the Smithsonian does. Smithsonian IMAX Director of Theaters, Zarth Bertsch and a wonderful staff do brief intros, special trailers, previews of exclusive films, and other presentations as well, making it truly unique.

C. Edward Sellner croppedTo make it more fun, Visionary CCO C. Edward Sellner will be kicking off his new semi-regular Get Creative Get Togethers revolving around select Smithsonian IMAX movies! We’ll be announcing specific times of new release films and special showings where our own CCO will be in attendance. Buy advanced tickets, watch a visionary movie then join Sellner in an informal gathering afterward, usually over a meal, to discuss the film, creating in general, and anything else.

“I’ve just been so thrilled with the response to the My Comic Life panels at conventions that I wanted to think of some cool ways to have more informal time with friends and fans to discuss comics, movies, and creating in general,” Sellner stated. “I love Smithsonian IMAX theaters, they are my first theater of choice every time. I also love the Smithsonian as a whole and wanted to do something to support their excellent mission. I spoke to Zarth and we agreed this seemed a good way to start.”

Our first official Get Creative Get Together will be for the January 29th, 5pm  Sci-Fi Sunday Special Christopher Nolan 15/70mm Film Takeover. Join us for an exclusive showing of Nolan’s visionary movie prologues for The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and his upcoming film Dunkirk, and then enjoy an exclusive screening of the full movie Interstellar, all at the Samuel C. Johnson IMAX Theater. Tickets are on sale now!

Check out the latest news from Smithsonian IMAX below including awesome upcoming releases like Hidden Figures, and special holdover, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! Look for our Get Creative Get Together announcements here in our weekly news updates, our forthcoming Get Creative weekly postings, and social media. We will also be setting up a Meetup group for the initiative. More details on the Nolan night this Sunday! Subscribe NOW!
