Masters of FX


Check out my book, Masters of FX, from Ilex and Focal Press, which features interviews with 16 of the world’s best visual effects supervisors and a foreword by James Cameron.

Updated: Now an ebook at Amazon and at Amazon UK or Apple iBooks UK for UK readers.

Writing Masters of FX was a dream project and allowed me to talk to some of my heroes from the effects world. The participants are leaders in practical special effects, miniatures, make-up effects and digital visual effects.
