JEFFREY A. OKUN has just completed the visual effects work on the 20th Century Fox's, The Day The Earth Stood Still Jeff was charged with creating invisible effects for the film, for which he was nominated for his 3rd Visual Effects Society award. The mission statement for this project was, 'If the audience sees a visual effect then we have ruined the film' - which is pretty difficult when you consider that spaceships, aliens, giant robots and nanotech killer insects were required for the project. The over 500 visual effects for this feature film include virtual characters, set extensions, full 3D photorealistic sequences, traditional matte paintings and creating spectacular action 'beats' that propel the story forward. Additionally Jeff employed science fact based CGI flocking systems based on chaos theory. Okun is known for creating 'organic' and invisible effects, as well as spectacular 'tent-pole' visual effects that blend seamlessly into the storytelling aspect of the project. "I feel that my job is not to showcase what can be done with the technology but to serve the story above all else." Okun has also worked on wide-ranging effects as seen in such award winning films as BLOOD DIAMOND, THE LAST SAMURAI, STARGATE, SPHERE, RED PLANET, DEEP BLUE SEA, LOLITA, and THE LAST STARFIGHTER. (For a full list of credits please refer to his CV.) His credits also include ground breaking music videos from such varied artists as Sting, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Janet Jackson, Wayne Newton, Bryan Adams, Amy Grant, Dolly Parton, Prince, Michael Jackson, the Neville Brothers and Rod Stewart. Additionally Jeff created visual effects tracking and bidding software that is in wide use within the industry, as well as the revolutionary visual effects technique dubbed the "PeriWinkle Effect" and the "Pencil Effect", which has been used in many projects to help achieve more a realistic sense of danger and more accurate budgets. Jeff is the Chair of the Visual Effects Society, and also served as chair of the VES Awards Committee, having spear-headed the creation of the Awards. He is a respected member of the Visual Effects Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the Academy of Television Arts and Science and BAFTA. He is currently editing the VES Handbook of Visual Effects, due to be published in early 2010.
