HOW TO START A CAREER IN SPECIAL EFFECTS
People always ask me, how do I get a career in special effects. Special effects is not an easy career to break into. But like anything else in life, were there is a will there is a way. In Hollywood, Ca. a great way to get started is to contact as many special effects equipment rental company’s as you can. Visit them in person. Speak to a manager or someone in charge. Ask if any entry level positions are available or may be coming up. This is a perfect environment to learn about the equipment, and how it relates to the business of special effects. This is also a great opportunity to make contacts to meet people who can help you get your entry level pyrotechnic three card. Which is the state of California’s entry level State’s Pyrotechnic License. This is just the beginning of my article on how to get in the business of Special Effects and how to be a pyrotechnic operator.
