Since making sketches and short films on YouTube at 15, I now specialize in producing digital content and tutorials. Combining a range of skills, from pre to post-production, I'll reveal to you the true power of the dark side!

Help will always be given at FXhome to those who ask for it.

From mind-blowing spell casting and disapparition to spellbinding invisibility effects.  Follow along with these wizard effects tutorials with our VFX wizard, Javert, and you’ll be a master of the dark arts in no time.


Harry Potter-style Wizard effects

Learn how to use the Particle Simulator* and Glow effects in HitFilm to cast and deflect spells. Add distortion and the perfect color grade to sell a seamless effect.

THIS IS GOING TO HURT

Mind-boggling disapparition effects

Disapparition is one of the coolest (and most useful) wizard effects that we see in Harry Potter. Get out of a tight spot with tracking, masking, and the Atomic Particles* effect to warp yourself away. It’s sort of exciting, isn’t it!


The power of invisibility

One of the most highly sought items in the wizarding world is the Cloak of Invisibility. With your new skills in the VFX Arts, you can get up to no good by turning yourself invisible; use it well. Mischief managed!

*Add-on available for HitFilm Express, demo for free.


Doctor Strange-style wizard effects

You can’t call yourself a master of the wizarding world until you’ve mastered the arts of the Sorcerer Supreme. Learn to harness the power of the Time Stone and the fabled Sling Ring with two of Doctor Strange’s most iconic wizard effects. In this VFX tutorial, we’ll show you how it’s done.


Conjure pure energy from mid-air with this magic energy ball effect

Some say, that the greatest sorcerers can summon energy from thin air. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how we created our magic energy ball wizard effect with the Particle Simulator and composited it into a scene from Unreal Engine.


Reality-bending spell effects like Scarlet Witch

Bending reality is a piece of cake when you’re the token Wiccan of the MCU. Learn how we recreated Scarlet Witch’s reality-bending energy effects in this VFX tutorial hosted by Zack Alan.
