PRACTICAL EFFECTS

The team of 32TEN artists and cinematographers have a decades long history of creating realistically spectacular practical effects.

32TEN clients have found that practical effects are just the right added ingredient to enhance scenes otherwise created with CGI.

Models and miniatures are ideal when the scene calls for the destruction of a set piece that isn’t feasible at full scale or one that doesn’t actually exist.

Adding organic practical elements — water, smoke, pyrotechnics, dust, ground impacts, bullet hits, muzzle flares or explosions — to scenes created with CGI add just the right amount of reality to bring any scene to life.

From models and miniatures to full-sized sets, custom designed rigging, water tanks or pyrotechnics, 32TEN can add blockbuster action to any film, television or commercial production.
