Staff Interview: Lead Visual Effects Artist Niel V.

May 28, 2012

Welcome to the latest season of our staff interviews. First to dive into the pool of inquisition is our Lead Effects Artist and certified South African expat Niel, otherwise known as ‘sonofamortician’. Niel’s worked on games across all major platforms and genres, and he’s now in charge of explosions, muzzle flashes, and any other effects that make our levels more fanciful, pretty, and immersive.

To find out more about Niel’s work here at Splash Damage, how he ended up in the industry, his tips for people wanting to break in, and what dark corner of his mind his nickname came from, check out the full interview.

If you have any questions for Niel about his work, post them up in the comments, and we’ll point him straight at them.
