I first worked with AFX on a SyFy Channel Premier film called "Fire From Below". The VFX element was a voracious, combustible, lithium fire-ball that sought out all liquids in its path, including humans. It goes without saying that a realistic, havoc wreaking fire-ball is a difficult visual effect, much less against daylight skies (which the film frequently called for) and AFX delivered a tremendous variety of shots on time and for an indie-film budget. I have used AFX several times since then and I know that I can count on quality, as well as cost-effectiveness and timely delivery.
We've been using AFX for years. They're extremely professional and accommodating. A nice change of pace from other VFX houses!
With AFX, it’s never a question of “if” or “why”… it is always a matter of “how”. Whether it is a technical issue or a matter of aesthetics, the team strives to find solutions. For example, when they worked my film, Burning Daylight, they were under intense time and budgetary constraints. Furthermore, they were faced with the challenge of working with a first time feature director. And despite these obstacles, they brainstormed and strategically put together a plan of action that ultimately delivered top results.
Whether the job be big or small, AFX has always exceeded my high expectations in the highly competitive arena of visual effects. I cannot over-estimate their importance in creating the most stunning visuals that will instantly elevate your film or commercial to new heights. And as always they're flexible and imaginative, which makes their involvement in your project a genuine 'fun' experience. Highly recommended!
The pros at AFX are creative, professional, and courteous - even on a high-stress project. They make any venture a rewarding creative experience.
I have had the privilege to work with Ryan Wilson [VFX supervisor/producer at AFX] as an Executive Producer on several projects. What makes Ryan extraordinary in my opinion, was not just his skill as a VFX talent but even more importantly as a man of integrity, who reflects selfless hard work and a willingness to be a true team member in every sense. If you are looking for someone who is talented, reliable, and a team player... look no further! Thank you Ryan for your talent, integrity, and sacrifices.
