About Special Effects Artist
June 18th, 2017
Special effects artists are highly talented and skilled professionals who envision and create imaginative illusions for movies, computer games, and television shows. Depending on the type of illusion required, these illusions may be optical, mechanical or computer-generated, using highly advanced computer graphics programs.
Talented special effects artists are in great demand to create illusions such as explosions or outer space conditions and other paranormal phenomena that would be otherwise impossible to create. Although formal education is not mandatory for someone who is extraordinarily talented in creating special effects, completing a bachelor's degree in animation, computer graphics or a related field, will help you develop and master the necessary technical skills. In addition to having the imagination and skills to envision unique and unusual illusions, special effects artists must also have the technical competency to reproduce those visions on screen. Excellent time-management skills and the ability to work under pressure are essential attributes for this role.
