Crew Call: Andre Ellingson

Our latest Crew Call visits with Andre Ellingson, Special Effects Supervisor for Criminal Minds.

As Ellingson explains, special effects is far more than just car crashes and explosions. He calls it “art meets science.” He and his crew are responsible for weather effects, breaking windows, and other atmospheric elements -  as well as explosions and crashes. And everything must be planned meticulously to make sure no one gets hurt.

Watch as Crew Call goes inside the world of special effects with Criminal Minds special effects supervisor Andre Ellingson.
