About

WELCOME TO NEIL CORBOULD SPECIAL EFFECTS LIMITED – A CORNUCOPIA OF CREATION.

Neil Corbould is a world leader in special effects both as an individual and a company, with over 35 years’ experience working on some of the biggest and most spectacular movies to hit the screen.

We have grown up with special effects and feel passionate about what we do. To us it is not just a job; it is a way of life.

We are constantly evolving, researching and investing in new technology and can provide bespoke effects or a complete package and with the added advantage of Neil’s involvement with BGI Supplies Limited and Moco FX Limited we can cover a wider spectrum of services which is so beneficial as we coordinate, complement and work to combine our talent and strengths without wasting time sourcing such services individually.

As part of our consultancy service, we have a network of the most experienced and respected technicians in the industry which gives us the flexibility to handle big or small projects, to suit your budget. We can cater for all your requirements but always providing the most supreme special effects.

We have developed our own administration software which looks after script breakdown, scheduling, budgets and budget tracking.

We have bases in two of the major studio complexes in the UK. Our head office is in Pinewood Studios and we also have additional offices and a fully equipped workshop and a licensed pyrotechnic magazine.

Neil’s outstanding contribution has been recognised with Academy Awards for “Gladiator” and “Gravity” and BAFTA awards for “The Day After Tomorrow”, “The Fifth Element”, “Saving Private Ryan” and “Gravity”.

Someone said to me 30 years ago “I don’t know why you’re going into SFX. It’ll be dead in 10 years.” Clearly not – Neil
