Visual Effects on a Limited Budget

This webinar is aimed at filmmakers who have need of visual effects to tell their story but lack a blockbuster (or anything close) budget. Legendary visual effects supervisor Scott Squires will take the audience through many tips and techniques to get the most out of whatever budget you may be forced to work around. He will cover the value of visual effects, why they are expensive and how to approach projects to get the most out of your visual effects.
