The DEC Team
Dynamic Effects Collective is a family-based Special Effects company.
We do what we love and love what we do.
Having both parents in the film industry, I grew up on movie sets. I have never really envisioned myself doing anything but Special Effects for a living. Working with my family creating Special Effects around the world is extremely fulfilling. I am always interested in learning how effects were done in past movies and how Special Effects artists from different parts of the world do things. My career goal is to win an Academy Award.
I am a hands-on Special Effects Supervisor with over 25 years experience. I have a thorough working knowledge of the Special Effects department and the logistics it takes to accomplish any project. I consider myself fortunate to be working with my two sons and our family takes pride in being easy to work with while providing World Class Special Effects. Our top priorities are safety, trust and professionalism. We love what we do.
I love the film industry because it allows me to work with amazing, creative people of all talents. Working alongside people who are at the top of their game pushes me to become the best I can be. I hold myself to a high professional standard. The organizational, mechanical, and artistic genius required to put together a feature film continually inspires me. I truly enjoy going to work everyday, and love every minute of it.
Dynamic Effects Collective has the capability to provide World-Class practical Special Effects to any media project. Our goal is to provide productions with visually stunning film footage through the use of Special Effects. The DEC Team has the ability and experience necessary to create Special Effects in any filming location on Earth. We love coming to work every day and we take great pride in our craft.

DEC is very familiar and comfortable working with cutting edge 3-D
technology. On Ang Lee’s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” we filmed
using 4K Resolution in native 3-D at 120 Frames-Per-Second for the
first time in film history.
We love working internationally. Dynamic Effects Canada is registered as a
“Known Consignor” with the Canadian Air Cargo Security Service. DEC can
efficiently organize, pack, ship, prep, produce and procure any practical
Special Effect at any filming location in the world.
With over 40 years of combined Special Effects experience, the Dynamic
Effects Team is committed and capable.
We consider creating Special Effects for the film industry as our life’s work and we enjoy every minute of it.
