Hey there,

Barbara Robertson talked to Dave Smith, fresh from his work on 'Eagle Eye' as Digital Effects Supervisor. His career spans from Boss Film in LA, back when CG was being tested for movie effects. Once he finishes one great project, he is always happy to go onto something better and more challenging. Click for the story, come back to comment. (

I went and saw this on my own as no one was really interested.. I have to say at times I did almost nod off, but when the final chase gets going - wow was I on the edge of my seat! The fx guys did an awesome job and really made me believe the whole sequence - very original too i think. Great job! :)

This Articles Really boosting the inspiration. Thank you very much,
I always wanted to take challenges in vfx projects. but my colleagues doing simple stuff and getting good score. From that i was thinking, never take challenging project anymore, but this article taught me a good lesson, that Weight of challenge will the the weight of success.
