Special Effects Types.
Special Effects types and techniques are so varied we've set up special effects sections to give you a flavour of what can be done. We very often combine several special effects at once and mix techniques to achieve the imagery and physical experience needed. It's a creative process so you don't need to specify the effect, just explain how you want it to feel and we'll suggest the best ways to get there within your budget.
