Almost every production today includes some form of visual effect - from home improvement shows moving walls to feature films with computer generated actors. How does this impact your project ideas? How do you act when your co-star will be "added in post"? What are best practices to direct live action for visual effect enhancement. How do you describe it in a script? What hairstyles and costume choices help sell visual effects?
