A bit about Steve:
“Let’s just fix it in post… is a line that’s way overused and generally incorrect in the world of VFX,” says Steve Vojkovic, VFX supervisor and artist.
Steve has over 25-years experience in post-production for TV and film specialising in finishing and VFX. Beginning with his grounding at a number of local broadcasters and post facilities, he then headed to Singapore to work as a technical product specialist with major software creator, Autodesk, travelling around the world and offering his insights on VFX solutions and digital workflows to various film and post companies. However, his creative juices beckoned and thus landed himself in Los Angeles working with Asylum Visual Effects on high end TV commercials for Coke, Chevrolet and Nike through to VFX-filled feature films. Steve returned to Perth in 2008 and not long after opened Boogie Monster, specialising in finishing, including grading, titles and VFX.
Steve will offer his insights from working on $200 million dollar blockbusters filled with over the top “make it or break it” VFX to the slightly less complicated shots on local short fims and the challenges that come with working alongside small budgets and VFX.
