Jumping into the world of VFX can be a lot of fun but also very hard and time consuming. We always want to go above and beyond with the work we do as artists, and we run into situations that allow us to challenge ourselves and better our work. This was the first time we worked on a Sci Fi show. With dedication and really, really…..REALLY long hours we helped bring some creativity onto the show Extinct which ran on a local broadcast network.
Visual effects (abbreviated VFX) is the process by which imagery is created or manipulated outside the context of a live action shot in filmmaking.
Visual effects involve the integration of live action footage (special effects) and generated imagery (digital or optical effects) to create environments, inanimate objects, animals or creatures which look realistic, but would be dangerous, expensive, impractical, time consuming or impossible to capture on film. Visual effects using computer-generated imagery (CGI) have recently become accessible to the independent filmmaker with the introduction of affordable and easy-to-use animation and compositing software.
