Our story is that of a mosquito stuck in a drop of sap. The sap turned into amber and 65 million years later dinosaurs were back. Sitting in that worn couch of our childhood home we were every bit as awestruck as the kids on the screen.
We realized that someone had dreamt up this world. Somewhere somebody had come up with this magnificent story – and made it real. We could see it and –more importantly– we could feel it. We owe our careers to the people behind that movie.
Since then many things have changed. We have better tools, more knowledge, plenty of experience to draw from. We’ve gone from enthusiastic amateurs to seasoned professionals. But fundamentally we do the same thing now as we did when we first started out: We bring dreams to screen.
Love for the craft
We make real what you see in your mind’s eye. It takes a certain nerdiness to put all those pixels together, an attention to detail bordering on obsession. We work closely with directors and creatives because understanding – internalizing – their vision is key. Once we’ve done that we can often add our experience to the mix, proposing smarter or more visually striking ways to do things.
What is Visual Effects
VFX is the process by which imagery is created or manipulated outside the context of a live-action shot in filmmaking. The integration of live-action footage and CG elements to create realistic imagery is called VFX. [wikipedia]
