Special effects are seldom the work of a videographer (Johannesburg.) As videographers Johannesburg specialise more in the field of event filming, and this rarely needs editing or special effects added to the end result. Special effects are more the result of cinematographers. They need to edit and compile footage into a story, and depending on the type of story, often means adding special effects to the production. Such productions are commonly movie, television or gaming productions. There are also different kinds of special effects. Some special effects will be used during the filming process. Using automated weather conditions, for instance. In modern society, however, much of the special effects are edited into the footage post production. The software used to create the imaginative worlds of visual geniuses offer a bigger scale of what can be done, and I’m guessing it is more affordable to CGI someone onto the moon than actually sending them to the moon. Using special effects, the creators can make the impossible seem possible. It makes the imagined seem like reality. It is where fantasy meets real world. Special effects even relate to sound. If they need wild animals to roar, or ghosts to scream, this is all the result of special effects. Videographers Johannesburg are not the workhands of this art form. However when using mechanical effects during the filming of productions, the camera crew is required to assist with the set up. This is true for cinematographers. There are different kinds of special effects software and programmes available, but the most commonly used special effects come from CGI. Its development is also ever improving. Most film, television and gaming productions utilise special effects. Sometimes for something as simple as placing the actors in front of a different background. Or adding fog to a scene.
