Hey everyone,Allan here - thanks for checking out this site! I've been hammering away for quite a while ALL DAY every DAY - building the what I hope you'll find to be a very comprehensive DVD on going through

all aspects of FX! Not the typical "click this and that" type of training, but one where we take a start from beginning through to rendering, and tackling every aspect, every effect, everything from the initial model, pretty much what I would do on any typical movie project! So I hope you guys like this, I definitely think it's something everyone should check out, whether you're 'new' to the industry or a seasoned veteran, as there's a lot of great stuff in here! Over EIGHT HOURS of video! And we look at Thinking Particles, Rayfire, Fume FX, and a lot of other really cool tools and approaches to doing Hollywood film effects!
Take a look and let me know what you think!

Thanks guys! -Allan




Time to blow stuff up! This DVD goes from start to finish through creating an entire production shot - developing from the ground up the initial bridge overpass scene - prepping it for FX and going through all of the phases of destruction and pyrotechnics! From the initial conceptual stages we look at how we will tackle this effect as if it was a real production shot, the challenges we'll run into and what is necessary to achieve the detail and effects we need!

From blocking out the initial previsualization and then moving onto fracturing geometry and prepping the effects, we then go through creating realistic explosions the dynamics, missiles, smoke, sparks, fire, every single effect needed as well as all of the additional dynamic fracturing and coregraphing our shots to get the specific desire effects we want.
This is by far the most comprehensive training material out there that will go through the entire process of being an FX Technical Diretor on a movie and tackling all of the aspects you would in real life and on a real Hollywood film production!
