About

meMy name is Stephen Elphick and I am a Scottish VFX artist currently based in Montreal.  I have worked in a wide variety of roles including pre production and on set production work. Within post production I am a true generalist, having animated large FX sequences, complete creature sequences and having composited a lot of my own work. I have recently started VFX supervising and have completed a number of short films. Being a British citizen who was born in the US, I have dual citizenship and can work without the need for a Visa in both the UK and the US .

Originally I studied Experimental Physics at York University and afterwards decided my career would lie in animation and VFX. I then studied 2D/3D motion graphics at the Digital Design Studio, at the Glasgow School of Art. Soon after I was given the opportunity to move to Montreal and work with BarXseven on a number of  Hollywood movies. On some of these films I have worked on previsulisation, fast visualization on set and then gone on to work on post production as an artist afterwards. I have worked closely with the Visual Effects Supervisors on a number of titles and this work has helped give me a rounded knowledge of the VFX industry.
