Visual Effects Supervisor

In the context of film and television production, a visual effects supervisor is responsible for achieving the creative aims of the director or producers through the use of visual effects.[1]

While it is a creative role, most supervisors possess a strong technical background and are capable of making informed decisions about the most efficient and effective technique to employ to solve the problem at hand. Often a supervisor will work in tandem with a visual effects producer and computer graphics supervisor.

Supervisors can be employed directly by a film production company or work for a visual effects company. Often there are several VFX supervisors on a project, although there is typically a senior VFX supervisor directing their efforts.

Specific responsibilities vary somewhat depending on the nature of the production, however most supervisors:

  • Handle a VFX project from conception through to completion
  • Manage and direct the technical, artistic, and production personnel
  • Possess a knowledge of various visual effects techniques with emphasis on camera set-ups and film knowledge with an eye for composition and camera work.
  • Accurately predict timing and associated costs of project
  • Collaborate on the bidding and negotiation processes

The Visual Effects Society is a prominent trade organization representing the interests of visual effects professionals.
