VFX! : Not just particles. 「Discussion」


#1

Doing vfx effectively require quite a big range of skills.
We need to model, unwrap, animate, code, draw, script, etc…

But what about skills that aren’t necessarily linked to vfx.

For example: My background in music has helped my quite a lot with understanding timing and even comunicating intent.
I’ve been playing piano and singing from a young age, so rythm and timeing almost come naturally.

I’m wondering about other skills like this.

What skills do you have that help you create better effects?

Oh, wow, talk about persistence!

I studied photography and electrical engineering. Somehow found a profession using color theory, framing, coding and maths all wrapped up in one.


#5

I feel like my experience with sculpting helped me understand the importance of silhouette and contrast when doing VFX.

I’ve a good friend who’s a super talented dancer, and because of it all his animation work is on point! Always thought that was interesting how similar the two are.

My degree is in theatre and I know how to tell a good story.
