Summary:

As way of an introduction my name is Neville Buchanan and I have been in the SPFX industry since 1979. I gained access to working as a Special Effects person on an American mini series called "The Martian Chronicles".

My boss was a Mr John Stears who was the practical effects man for STAR WARS. He had seen the little VISUAL EFFECTS reel that I had made in my spear time and liked it so much he offered me a position within his company for that production. Cutting a long story short years later i was able to have my own Special Effects company and employ 25 people within it. I was able to produce a PILOT episode of a SCI- FI series that used both Stop Motion Motion Control and CGI within it. I had a ran this company for 9 years.
