Why SFX is important

Film buyers tell us they always look at production values when they buy films. SFX is a great way to add production values.
Do it wrong, however, and your film will look cheesey.

Spend some time with veteran SFX specialist like Dan Martin - buyers will think you spend loads of cash. When you haven't.
Shards Day Two - Sunday 20 July 10 - 6pm

Focus on the Woo side of things. How to modify that prop gun to fire a six-inch muzzle flash? How do we make ricochets without hiring an expensive pyrotechnician?

Learn the necessary procedures for making indie film with weapons when it comes to police involvement. For those who didn't get enough blood in day one we'll be discussing which bit of strange Eastern European plumbing equipment can be modified to provide the exit splash for a ballistic suicide.

We are passionate about filmmaking at Raindance.

We never present courses unless we are interested ourselves, or until we are confident that this course can offer the most amount of information, in the least amount of time and at the best possible price.

I personally believe this will be an outstanding weekend, and i hope to meet you there.
