Joe Farranto, a high school teacher at Cicero-North Syracuse High School, was in need of high-quality VFX Stock Footage for his Video Production class. It isn't unusual to sell to schools, but this was the first time we had ever sold to a high school. Take a look and see why they chose ActionVFX.
See how this two-man team turned around a large number of action-based VFX shots for this award-winning series, and how ActionVFX elements helped them do so without sacrificing the overall quality of their composites!
We had the opportunity to chat with Jake Akuna, Founder and VFX Supervisor of VFX2GO.Jake let us know a little bit about who they are, what inspires them as artists, and how they've utilized some of our VFX stock footage assets in their compositing for feature films.
"Entertainment has always been about escapism for me. A chance to go somewhere I have never been and see something that I have never seen." Check out our latest post to read about our interview with VFX Supervisor, Dustin Solomon.
Today, we'll be chatting with Sindre Johnsen of CoSA VFX about his journey to becoming a Lead Compositor. We'll also discuss how he achieved some very realistic results using ActionVFX stock footage in the brand new 'Waco' series.
Today, we’re going to be talking with Hollywood stuntman Dave Macomber about his process of pre-visualizing action (and VFX-heavy) sequences for big budget films like Avengers: Infinity War and Rampage, and how ActionVFX elements play an integral role in bringing his scenes to life.
If you’re anything like the ActionVFX team, you love a good end-of-the-world film! But how can you make a unique world believable when you’ve got a low budget and a small crew? Filmmaker Preston Yarger, a fellow apocalypse junkie, wasn’t dissuaded by these problems. Determined to make something bigger than the average film student, he started putting together his vision of ARCH, his thesis project, two years before shooting.
For those of you with a keen eye, you might've noticed that ActionVFX assets are quickly becoming the go-to choice for visual effects related stock footage. Everyday we're seeing our assets being used in bigger and better productions, but it's not only large feature films and network television shows that are taking advantage of our high quality effects.
