Mike Oakley

I am an artist with a passion for creating breathtaking visual effects for film, television, and video games. I have always been fascinated by the art of storytelling and the power of visual effects to transport audiences to new worlds and immerse them in incredible stories.

In my 20+ years, I have had the privilege of working with some of the most talented and creative individuals in the industry, and have been fortunate enough to contribute to some truly amazing projects.

In my work, I strive to push the boundaries of what is possible with visual effects, creating stunning and realistic effects that enhance the storytelling and immerse audiences in new and exciting worlds. Whether it’s a massive explosion, a complex creature, or a breathtaking environment, I approach each project with the same level of dedication, attention to detail, and creativity.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my work as a VFX artist. I look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with you on your next project!
