Moviescope magazine (2011) featured Jason’s approach to special effects for their Insider’s POV article "The are of the invisible":

''Special effects are about adding detail that audiences are going to appreciate subconsciously just as much as giving them eye-popping spectacle. I try to create a heightened reality that sits seamlessly within the environment and genre of the film. This requires a level of attention to detail that is often not in the script, but the payoff is that physical effects can create unique and unexpected results by providing atmosphere and dimension''.


Extensive knowledge of the film making process allows Jason to configure the special effects department to suit the budget, mixing his specialist crew with local special effects teams to assemble adaptable, dependable teams that work with a positive attitude and deliver exceptional work, on time.
