Picture

Visual Effects (VFX)

Soundfirm recently opened a VFX department specifically designed to offer high end performance for local films. Using industry standard software such as Nuke, Flame, Maya and Unity at our core, our team also leverages cutting edge technology such as Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Our efficient, targeted, and versatile approach, allows us to achieve the best possible results, while remaining budget conscious to your project.

Find your camera angles and get your coverage in a virtual environment before you arrive on set, using real-world scales, lenses, and camera body information.

Our team can work with your crew to ensure that your VFX are shot in the most effective way possible, maximising your result without bloating the budget. 

Walk down the hallway and have a chat with the VFX team while looking at your edit or full-res media. Want to see it projected in a colour calibrated theatre? We can do that too.
