Visual Effects Artist Job Description

Visual effects (also called VFX) is a post-production process used to add visual elements to a film, television program, video game, and other visual media.

Visual effects are generally created through five stages of production: previsualization, concept art, animation, compositing, and editing.

At the beginning of a project, the director, art directors, producers, and VFX supervisors collaborate to determine the look of the project.

The director views the concept art and feedback from the rest of the creative team.

Based on this information, the director and VFX supervisor create storyboards.
