Visualizing the future (5)

When Bremble worked on Conan the Barbarian last year, the director only knew he wanted an underwater creature that's "dangerous" and "scary". Base FX's visual artists created four packages with different skin, lighting, wetness and color.

When Base FX worked on I am Number Four with George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic, the visual effects industry's standard-setter, Base FX's Chinese artists set the look.

The experiences of working in companies like Pixomondo and Base FX benefit China's creative talent profoundly, Pixomondo's production supervisor Wang Xiaowei believes.

"Our Chinese employees are pretty young; they're 20-somethings," he says. "They may not be as experienced as their counterparts in Europe and the US, but we have so many big projects that they can develop fast."

Some of Base FX's employees have opened their own studios and are working with their former employer, Bremble says.

"I simply don't accept the argument that Chinese filmmakers are not creative enough," he says. "Creativity needs time to make, but the impatience I have seen among Chinese filmmakers is good."
