our Vision:​

 

Welcome to Nefzer Special Effects

 

With over 50 years of experience in the moviemaking business, our purpose and vision is to transform imagination into reality. To create realistic physical special effects, from the pages of a script to the action on screen, within the frame and story. We pride ourselves in delivering physical on camera effects to the complete satisfaction of both Directors and Producers, within budget, every time.

Safety, efficiency and reliability are major factors on how we work at Nefzer Special Effects. We have a full administration team standing by in our head office in Babelsberg Studios, organized to quickly and efficiently setup teams in our custom built workshops and engineering facilities. Our mobile workshops are always ready to roll out to the next destination, wherever it is needed. 

 

From Europe to Asia, Africa to India, Russia to the UK, we have traveled the world.  Wherever we go we fully assimilate into our surroundings, using local resources, hiring local crew and creating infrastructure when needed to efficiently setup production and get started creating special effects onscreen.

 

Our Passion drives us to work efficiently, think creatively and create whatever is needed for on camera effects. We can design, engineer and fabricate to suit the needs of even the most demanding film makers. From concept to design, implementation to completion, we always have the final movie in our minds.
