What is FX?

FX Technical Directors (FX TD) primarily craft physics-based effects such as fire, smoke, water and destruction elements. Occasionally, they may be tasked with creating non-physical effects, including magical spells or impossible objects. FX TD usually uses a real-life simulation or object as the starting point for their work. To excel in this field, an FX TD must possess a keen eye for motion, analytical acumen, and the patience and perseverance required for complex simulations. The most successful FX TDs masterfully blend both technical and artistic abilities.
