Atmospheric Special Effects.

Welcome to atmospheric special effects, a microsite about atmosphere or weather effects for film and tv. We create realistic rain, mist, snow and windy atmospheres, adding smoke, fog or haze for extra effect. Special effects success can be odd. Mention "Special Effects" and most people imagine explosions or death-defying encounters that are generally way outside everyday experience. However... with atmospheric special effects, directors often want a mood conveyed but don't want an effect to be seen at all.

Numbing cold, searing heat, urgency and industry, the special effects department takes its part in building credible environments where the lack of an environmental element would be obvious. This is when experience counts, because putting the 'it' back in, whether 'it' be rain, wind, mist, snow or any another weather phenomena is often more complicated than, eventually, appears on screen. Jason wrote an insider's view feature for movieScope magazine in February 2011, about how our effects work created atmosphere for Peter Weir's film, The Way Back. Here's the pdf all about those atmospheric effects.
