VFX Supervisor: Their Role & How They Can Help Your Film
How can a VFX Supervisor make your indie film’s VFX shine? I’ve been a VFX Supervisor on multiple feature films, shorts, commercial and music videos. My job was to get the shots the director wanted executed at a very high standard and of course on budget.
The official definition of a visual effects or VFX supervisor is:
VFX Supervisors are responsible for achieving the creative aims of the director and/or producers through the use of visual effects.
Specific responsibilities the a VFX Supervisor vary depending on budget, scope and the nature of the production, however most VFX supervisors:
Handle a VFX project from the start of the project through to completion
They oversee the technical, artistic, and production personnel on the visual effect team
Possess a knowledge of various VFX techniques including an emphasis on camera set-ups and film knowledge with an eye for composition and camera work.
Accurately predict timing and budget associated with the project
Collaborate with production on the bidding and the negotiation processes.
