‘Criminal’ + 9iFX.
LET’S MAKE SOME MOVIE MAGIC.

Whatever the creative vision, 9iFX has the experience and skillset to add a touch of movie magic to your scripted project. We are proud to partner with Writers, Directors and Producers to bring their creative vision to life. Here’s a taste of what we can do.


WHO WE ARE.

9IFX IS A FULL SERVICE POST PRODUCTION AND VISUAL EFFECTS BOUTIQUE, CREATING AWARD WINNING WORK FOR FILM, TV & BRANDS. 

Our team started in episodic and longer form content before branching out into the commercial realm. Our talented team has experience working on everything from blockbuster features & hit tv shows, to indie films and award winning shorts. This page features a mix of some of the horror genre projects our team has worked on over the years, both as 9iFX and together as a team prior.

We love a good scifi flick. VFX can add the perfect level of believable to any scene – from creature morphs, to a swarm of flies, to post apocalyptic scenes – we can pull off the desired look.

OUR AWARDS

Word on the street

Michael Miller and the entire team at 9iFX were just awesome. We had a tight delivery schedule and specific VFX requirements. Michael met with me immediately with a smile on his face, samples on his laptop, and a very reasonable bid. Their work was the highest quality and everyone on our producing team was thrilled. Anything we asked for, they could deliver quickly and at a reasonable cost. From roto work to skydive silhouettes to complicated webpage motion graphics inserted over our computer screens, they nailed it every time. I’d use them again in a heartbeat. Oregon should be proud of this very talented VFX team.

OUR FILMOGRAPHY

Work SampleS

GRIMM
NBC

9iFX’s own Michael Miller was the on-set VFX Supervisor & Lead Compositor on NBC’s Grimm for five years before starting 9iFX. That’s where he met CG Lead Eric Reed. Michael and Eric have been working together since 2010.

SUPERVISOR REEL
CELESTE LEIZER

When Celeste Leizer isn’t moonlighting with the 9iFX team to help us out with larger projects, she’s busy working on blockbuster features at some of the largest VFX studios on the planet. An alumni of NBC’s Grimm, Celeste has been working with the 9iFX team on and off for over a decade, and loves coming back to work with us when the right project strikes. This is her reel.

They Found Hell
FEATURE FILM

 9iFX was excited to create spooky fog and perform some complex compositing and rig removal for this SyFy Original film.

The Cleansing Hour
FEATURE FILM

9iFX was pleased to work on the VFX for this short horror film – winner of 12 national and international film festivals! It was so successful that it was later remade into a full length feature film.

You Are Not Alone
FEATURE FILM

There is nothing like an independent horror flick; we love working on them! That’s why we were all a buzz to take on all of the visual effects shots in this feature. We completed over 75 creepy crawly VFX shots for this project.

The Competition
FEATURE FILM

9iFX stepped in to deliver a variety of visual effects for this feature: animating a sexy CG avatar, reconstructing Thora Birch’s face in order to paint out bad reflections, cleanup and rig removal, and matte painting.

MASKS OF DESIRE
Short FILM

9iFX was brought on to this short film to provide digital sets, set extensions, fire simulations, and other mystical VFX.

SPACE BITCH
SHORT FILM

This short film had a couple of oopses on set that 9iFX was brought in to clean up. Including this scene where we removed the face covering reflections of the camera and crew from the main character’s helmet.

The Flash
THE CW

Back in the early days of 9iFX, we were asked to do some effects for The Flash on the CW, including this clone shot.

Z Nation
SYFY ChANNEL

Who loves a good cheesy zombie series? 9iFX had the joy of “gorifying” and infecting this TV series for the SyFy Channel.

Nathan’s Kingdom
FEATURE FILM

This film had an ambitious goal to tell its lore featuring tower like columns made of millions of orcs reaching to the heavens, falling angels, and a war of gods in the clouds – winner of 12 national and international film festivals! While the film itself was more of a drama than a horror flick the stylized effects we created for it had a decidedly hellish look and feel to them.

VH1
RuVeal Campaign
for Rupaul’s Drag Race

9iFX got to werk, providing full creative development, onset supervision, and full post production, including VFX, motion graphics, and 3D digital sets for this record breaking social campaign.

The Titan Games

9iFX delivered some shocking effects to season two of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s The Titan games on NBC.

THE EMMYS
