Ford Austin is relentless. Every time I speak to him he’s developing a new project, in post on another, doing some acting AND in the middle of directing the next big thing. He’s a madman. His latest feature, Dahmer vs Gacy is currently in post and I’m in for visual effects. On deck for this project: exploding windows, news graphics and LOTS of virtual blood. Google “Dahmer vs Gacy.”
Dedicated short film director Jeremy Lanni, the auteur of Noble Savage Productions brought me on board to provide visual effects for his new short Back Story. I will be upping the ante for his opening credit effect and providing a delightfully hellish backdrop for a character later in the film. Production starts in a couple of weeks — I can’t wait!
For the last year (at least) I’ve been heavily steeped in my first feature film with Deviant Pictures: trippin’. It’s a dark dramedy with horror elements that serves up real characters, a boldly original concept a puppet and a WAY freaked out drug trip courtesy of myself (visual effects director) and Wuhan Digital Media.
Thanks for visiting The Art of Ian Strandberg (me!). I’m a professional artist living and working in the Los Angeles area. I specialize in Digital Effects for film and video but as you’ll find here I work on a wide range of projects and love making stuff of all kinds.

Creature makeup concept designs for Deviant Pictures. This design was fully realized in silicone and human hair for a short film.
Pics from the makeup chair until production stills come through. The white things are straws (the performer is claustrophobic).
