As a third-generation special effects supervisor, Jeremy Hays grew-up in the movie industry, witnessing firsthand a variety of filmmaking approaches that were sometimes successful, but often times not. His own resume is diverse, ranging from Hearts in Atlantis, to The Equalizer, to Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, where he also makes a cameo as a flamethrower trainer. And for Hays, failure is always a learning experience. “On any film, what I do first is analyze the creative elements and then talk with the director, producers, or writers, to get an idea of what their focus points are,” he explains. “When designing a special effect, you want it to fail a few times in the shop before actually doing it in front of a camera. Having an effect that is 80 percent effective right out of the gate can be misleading, as that might be as far as it will ever get. Some projects that are fast paced don’t allow you time to test, so you have to tap into the experience of all those failed jobs that make you go, ‘That’s not going to work.’ Through those failures, you increase your proficiency and accuracy.”

One of the big frustrations that we all have is — we want more money. Anytime we want a pay bump, we have to wait for our annual review and see if we get a salary increase at our main job. Yet we spend our spare time doing something more creative because we aren’t being challenged at work. We go home to do the work that we find fulfilling in the first place.
