Horror Special Effects 101 Workshop
Let’s face it – the horror genre has the benefit of being both popular and lucrative in the city of Houston. It’s important to realize good special effects could very well be the deciding factor that separates your film from the rest. Whether gearing up for a full feature or specialized niche contests and competitions in the horror genre, this workshop has your answers.
One of the premiere special effects team in Texas - Rancid House FX - shows you how to get started with special effects for every budget. Whether you’re a professional with a few films under your belt or just getting started, you can rest assured you will come away with new appreciation for what it takes to deliver authentic, realistic and altogether chilling & horrific special effects.
Here are some of the few effects that will be covered:

Man! I would love to attend this, but the timing on it all is just bad for me. :( Maybe next time around. I love horror movies and learning a little of this nature would be awesome.
