Could your film, video or web project benefit from
expert consultation by award-winning visual effects master Ed Kramer? Would you like to invite Ed to
share his engaging stories of special effects history?
A Technical Director at Industrial Light and Magic for many years, Ed Kramer's work has included visual effects for Star Wars I-III (remember the fiery lava planet?), Pirates of the Caribbean II (remember the Kraken?), Harry Potter II (how about the Quidditch course?), The Mummy (who can forget the skittering scarab beetles?) and many other high visibility projects for television and film.
Ed and his talented network of experienced freelance video effects artists can provide high-end results for any film, video or animation project. Ed is also currently teaching the next generation of gurus as a college professor, welcoming smaller-scale projects for his students, a rare opportunity to incorporate the guiding touch of a master at low cost.
Known for his entertaining presentations to audiences of all ages, relating first-hand experience with many popular directors and films, Ed is also available for interviews and events.
