Special Effects Designer

The execution of special effects on stage is a complicated and intricate process; as the audience is live and up-close, directors do not have the luxury of another take, such as in film or television, and there is no polishing in post-production. Instead, all effects must perform correctly the first time and do so repeatedly for each performance. This calls for intense collaboration between design departments, as well as the skill and expertise of a highly trained professional.

Special Effects Supervisor

Computer-generated visual effects have transformed film and television forever, and the applications grow ever more sophisticated. Yet there’s nothing like a live-action fireball resulting from the bad guy’s SUV careening off Mulholland Drive and onto the hillside below. For the real-life disaster drama of explosions, tidal waves, and earthquakes, the film and television industry rely on the talents and training of the special effects team. 

Sound Effects Editor

Without the noises and sounds that accompany all physical action in real life, a movie or television show lacks the reality that our brains expect and need in order to fully become immersed in the viewing experience. The sound effects editor works under the direction of the supervising sound editor and is responsible for manufacturing, recording, and editing all sound effects tracks included in a film or TV show.

Legacy Effects

Legacy Effects was formed in 2008 out of Stan Winston Studios, after the passing of Academy Award–winning special effects master Stan Winston. Shane Mahan, John Rosengrant, Lindsay MacGowan, and Alan Scott partnered to preserve the memory of their late mentor and continue his legacy of stunning special effects.
