Visual Effects for Directors
"Visual Effects for Directors” or "How to Shoot for Post-Production” or "How to NOT Give Your VFX Team a Heart Attack”
Post-production visual effects can be a tricky business…only if you don’t plan for it. Whether your script calls for vfx from the get-go, or you get to the editing room to find that a shot needs that "fix it in post” touch, most movies nowadays call for the talents of a visual effects artist.
This workshop will teach you how to approach visual effects while in pre-production/production and set up your shots for success. It will also show the breakdown of the more popular vfx techniques out there (green screen, motion tracking, removing objects digitally, adding additional elements to a scene, etc.) so you’ll know how a vfx artist works.
