In this episode (and the next), we have a chat with artist Dominic Hailstone.  He works extensively with visual effects and has a background in makeup effects and practical effects which inform his approach.

Being an early adopter of visual effects and using computers places him in a unique position of seeing both sides and is well versed in the processes and business in film making. As you will hear, his intimate understanding of film making as a storyteller and a designer gives him a good insight into the business.

Check out Dominic's website where you can see his work as a director in The Eel, artist, sculptor and visual effects reels. The variety and range of mediums and styles is fantastic, and you really have to see this stuff to appreciate what he is capable of.  We think you'll get a kick out of it.

Dom is also on YouTube and Instagram @dominic_hailstone_

In this first part, the areas we cover include:

  • Management meddling with effects and design choices.
  • Being responsible for more than just effects, creating your own work.
  • The struggle between old school & new tech.
  • What is special now, and the insubstantial nature of the internet
