YOU CHOOSE - What Happens In The Upcoming Visual Effects Training Series

Now, with the upcoming visual effects training series, have your say and share your input on what would make a 'kick ass, visual effects shot!'

This will be an opportunity to have your say on what YOU want to see in the upcoming training coming out in the next few weeks, with this highly interactive experience.

It's time for YOU to choose your own adventure!

Either submit your idea - or simply sign up to participate in this training

Here's the deal - For the next week until November 30 I want YOU to submit your ideas of what you want to see in this visual effects shot (above).

This is your opportunity to submit your ideas - whether it be a tornado, asteroid, nuclear explosion, WHATEVER you think would be cool. From there on November 30, we will vote on the top 10 ideas and the highest voted concept will then be turned into a training series.

So YOU CHOOSE the concept, of what you want to see happen. After we all vote - there will be a massive training series created from start to finish as Allan goes through creating the visual effects shot from scratch, documenting the entire process as he goes. So this is a chance to be part of this highly interactive experience from the ground level!
