Ep-30: The Filmmaker's guide to Visual Effects author and VFX supervisor Eran Dinur.
Updated: Nov 23, 2020
At age 40, he left one successful creative career behind and embarked on another. His first visual effects credit was on Marvel's Iron Man, and it wasn't long before he was juggling between VFX supervising, teaching VFX, and writing professional literature. Listen to Eran breaking down his remarkably efficient journey into the heart of the VFX industry, just as he's entering a new leadership role at FuseFX, and getting ready to publish his next book.
Continuing recent trends, this episode is available in video:
Originally from Israel, Eran's VFX supervision credits include films such as BOARDWALK EMPIRE, THE WOLF OF WALSTREET, THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts and has online workshops at FXPHD, and his book THE FILMMAKER'S GUIDE TO VISUAL EFFECTS is a must-have for any filmmaker who wants an easy-to-understand introduction to the fundamentals of the craft and workflows of visual effects.
Rather than giving any more away, I invite you to listen to this episode. I can promise that you'll find his journey fascinating and inspiring, and also get some valuable insights into what makes him such a great and well-respected visual effects supervisor despite (or maybe due to) having entered the field relatively late in his professional timeline.
