They also meet different people of the movie crew like creative and technical executives and discuss the whole visual effects concept with the director before shoot of the film. Furthermore, they decide the necessary enhancement needed after the shooting.
A visual effects producer is also accountable for determining the number of special effects they will require during filming and once all of the things were finalized ; he oversees the project from beginning to the end of production. The visual effects producer switches their roles between the effects department and a production designing department time to time. They do this to make sure that the artist gets well familiarized with the original visual concept of the movie.
