We build mockups, whip up beer foam, create wacky machines – basically we do everything your product needs to make it look great for customers. We are researchers, artists and craftspeople with more than a quarter century of experience and expertise. We push the boundaries of what is possible a little bit further every day. The one constant in all we do: Effectiv team SFX delivers the finest handmade special effects

finest

When it comes to the finest, most minute details, we leave nothing to chance. Our dedicated sfx development department realizes even the zaniest ideas quickly, flexibly and compellingly. In our fully equipped workshops, we can build any type of SFX rig for whatever special effect is required. Plus, our warehouse has everything you need for an effects-packed production and impressive tabletop shoots. For reliable results, we prep SFX in our own in-house testing studios and employ a range of high-speed cameras shooting at up to 2,500 fps in full HD: Phantom HD Gold, Phantom Flex 2K and Phantom Flex 4K. By the way, you can also rent our test studios and high-speed cameras. Our studios are also equipped with various turntables, motion control systems and multi-axis model movers. With our Bolt high-speed motion control system and highly skilled operators ensuring precise and absolutely repeatable synchronized camera movements, we are ready to carry SFX to ever new levels.

handmade

Armed with master craftsmanship and pioneering zeal, we break the boundaries of physical material constraints. We are SFX specialists in a variety of different technical fields working in close tandem on classic special effects, rigging, car prep, mockups, pyrotechnics, model making, package mockups, food styling, beer styling, product care, cameras and lighting, electronics and data processing. With a lean team of experts working on your project with an eye on cost-efficiency, we can accommodate even the tightest timeframes and super-complex processes.

special effects

Our specialties are optical and mechanical effects in the fields of liquids, food, beauty, beer, cars and mockups. We pull out all the stops to achieve that magic moment. With our high-speed cameras, we turn your storyboard into a shootable reality – in slow-motion. Our goal is to show things that have never been seen, and to create an unmistakable look – for each unique production.
