James Wan

Lead FX Artist

Method Studios

Responsible for leading a team of over 20+ Artists to help bring the director's ambitious vision to the big screen.

I also contributed to developing the look and visual language for some of the film's key characters such as the "Hydropulse" weapon effect of the Atlantian soldiers, the "Manta Lazer Beam" effect for Black Manta as well as Mera's "Hydrokinesis" and its many incarnations of influencing liquids such dancing liquid characters in a fountain or forming spikes out of wine bottles to defend her self.

In addition to overseeing all the creative and technical requirements I contributed to setups and shot work for complex building destruction, seamless cg explosions, ground interaction, jet pack thrusters and many supporting fx elements.
