Visual Effects for Television, Film, and Digital Media
I will help you fix your visual effects shots before post. In fact, I'm here to help plan your production so you don't have to fix it at all.
Slick CGI has become so ubiquitous that it fails to engage the viewer and is on the verge of becoming cliche. By giving thought to visual effects during pre-production, Your project can stand apart, and by exploring unique and novel techniques your story can have a visual style all its own. This includes exploring new technologies, or going back and exploring classic VFX methodologies from the pre-digital era.
There is always degree of visual effects in any production, some of it intentional, some not. The VFX toolbox continues to grow, and the key to using VFX cost-efficiently and to their greatest effect is knowing which tools to use. I've seen how the visual effects sausage gets made, and have 20 years of experience in trying the recipes of what works and what doesn't.
Some issues are unavoidable, such as fixes that are necessary from unforeseen events during principal photography, but many can be avoided in the pre-production and development phase by careful planning and thoughtful discussion. Sometimes it is tweaking the approach or modifying the effect, and sometimes it is entirely re-thinking and asking "Do we need CGI here, or is there an better/more cost-effective way to tell our story?". A slightly modified approach, achieved in-camera and on-location, can many times be less expensive, look better, and provide a far greater piece of mind than a stack of greenscreen elements left for a post-production period when time and funds begin to become scarce.
