Benicio F/X Elements Creates SMASH® Plastic Castings As Few Can
Few special effects artisan's are as clever and tenacious when it comes to finding material answers to create effects for film projects.
Mario Benicio has provided special effects for films around the world and is often challenged to innovate and come up with effects never before seen on the big screen. That often means a lot of trial and error experimentation to understand how a material behaves under certain conditions.
