We headed to ReelFx studios, which specializes in production and post-production special effects in movies (including animation). We were first given a tour of the studio and its infrastructure by Mr. Chuck and then they screened some of their special effects work (in 3-d) they have done in their movies and also some clippings of their new production. The whole experience was amazing.
ReelFX was started by Chuck Peil and his friends. Mr. Chuck was on the creative edge. He liked designing and making ideas. Thus with some technical experts in gadgets and software, they were able to start of this venture. They have partnered with many huge production houses in making well known movies.
On being asked about their struggles before this success, Mr. Chuck and Ms. Amy was humble enough to tell that they did not have the clientele initially to boast, and also talked about how many other production houses were trying to take over them and how they refused to give in to the pressure. But today after their good work shown on screen, movie makers are constantly working with them to incorporate special effects.
We were also given insight about the whole movie business and how it works. On their expansion plans, they mentioned they have another studio at Texas. Also they are partnering with some movie makers from other countries as well.
