Show Topic: Preparing
To Shoot Visual Effects

What We're Looking For

You're a Director getting ready to direct something visual effects heavy involving green screen and CGI. With expert visual effect supervisors, we help you figure out how to shoot it and which pitfalls to avoid.


  • You have a real project that you're soon planning to shoot. We want conversation about real problems with real stakes.
  • It's OK if you feel completely lost about how to approach this. Shooting visual effects is confusing.
  • You should ideally bring your DP or production manager with you on the show.

If Selected For The Show

  • You and all partners/stakeholders must give express permission in the form of a signed release to discuss your project on the show.

Go Ahead And Submit!

  • We'll only respond if we're considering you for the show. But don't feel bad if you don't hear back. Not being selected is mostly about what makes the right show.
  • You will not be added to any email list.
  • Any project pitches will be kept confidential, will not be shared with third parties, and are deleted if we pass.
  • If pitching a project, you release us from liability, should anyone connected to the show be working on a similar idea. Improbable, but not impossible.
