Switch VFX, a visual effects studio specializing in photorealistic effects and CG character creation for feature films and television, has completed visual effects production for the upcoming feature film “Saw III.” As the sole effects house, Switch VFX created more than 130 shots under the supervision of vfx supervisor Jon Campfens for the psychologically extreme film. Set for a Halloween release from Lions Gate Pictures, “Saw III” is described as the most disturbing chapter in the popular horror franchise, with terrifying new plot twists.
Switch VFX also served as the primary effects facility for the Disney Channel’s “Santa Baby,” for which it produced extensive CG shots and matte paintings. Switch VFX recently completed matte paintings for the AMC mini-series “Broken Trail,” directed by Walter Hill and starring Robert Duvall, and wrapped effects production on the NBC/Lifetime television drama series “Angela’s Eyes.”
Switch VFX executive producer Pete Denomme said “We are very proud to have contributed to the visual horror of “Saw III” and we’re delighted with our entire production slate through 2007. Our new projects will provide great creative and technical challenges for our artists, and will also give us the opportunity to expand our studio’s size and capabilities.”
