James Rogers ︎ VFX Supervisor & Creative Director
The Railway Man
Feature Film
This beautiful, moving film starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth spans decades, and required a mix of vastly different war-time environments as well as the re-creation of certain period correct train stations. Pretty much every trick in the book was used for this, including CG crowds, matte paintings, CG vehicles and trains, explosions, digital make-up and similar details. I was both the production VFX Supervisor and VFX cinematographer for this film.

What I do

A visual effects supervisor is basically a visual problem solver. I try and recruit ideas from a variety of sources—new, old, borrowed or transposed from other disciplines and industries; curiosity drives me. But ultimately, I am an creative image-maker first and foremost.

I closely collaborate with others and keep a holistic view of the process—delivering creatively, on time, on budget. I excel at logistically complicated projects and team building.
