Escape Studios Invisible Effects Webinar

Though many associate VFX with fantastical world and creatures, a lot of the time a visual effects studio’s work involves creating what is arguably the exact opposite. For most in the industry, this is all about producing invisible effects – work that will only be considered truly successful not if the audience praises the incredible effects at the end of a film, but never actually realises the studio had any involvement in the film at all – seamlessly merging the artificial and the real. This crucial yet often overlooked aspect of the industry will be the theme of ‘Invisible Visual Effects’, the latest in a series of free webinars visual effects academy Escape Studios hosts every month.

Taking place this Thursday 12 December from 18:30 to 19:30 GMT and available to anyone who registers for the event on the Escape Studios website, the webinar will see Taran Spear, NUKE artist at London-based Electric Theatre Collective, demonstrate how VFX artists create the illusion of reality using compositing techniques. Industry-standard compositing tool NUKE will be introduced with an explanation on how to composite a 3D asset onto a back plate, as well as techniques such as adding subtle enhancements that help embed virtual assets and a sneak peek at where these techniques are used in our favourite feature film blockbusters.
