Visual Effects (VFX) artists transform ordinary footage into extraordinary visual experiences. They use computer-generated imagery (CGI) to create effects that are impossible to achieve in live-action filming. Whether it’s creating explosive action scenes, seamless background enhancements, or intricate animations, VFX artists bring imagination to life.

Here’s how find the right VFX artist for your project.

  • Proficiency in Software: Mastery of tools like Adobe After Effects, Autodesk Maya, and Nuke.

  • Artistic Talent: A keen eye for design and detail.

  • Strong Portfolio: Past work speaks volumes. Look for diversity in their portfolio to gauge versatility. Be sure to check each freelancer’s online Guru portfolio.

  • Mid-Level: $40 - $80 per hour. Capable of handling more complex projects with a higher quality output.
