Stage 1


Cumulus VFX will help you through every stage of the process and devise cost effective solutions for the visual effects required. We start the process by understanding you, your audience, and your story in order to plan and execute your VFX vision. Once we have an understanding of the landscape of your project, we will break down the story into a digestible format and openly quote on the requisite stages of your project.

Stage 2


Once we have an understanding of your budget, we can start to compose the visual look with conceptual art, storyboards, pre-visualisation and VFX processes, including onset needs, RnD and schedules. This stage of the process is essential to ensuring we have an understanding of how the end result will come together. This not only saves time, money and resources, but also aids the visual spectacle that your story deserves.
