Customer reviews for Commercial Killers



Fantastic book. Crammed to the rafters with usable and practical workers.



I was in 2 minds in getting this book as it seems a bit pricey. However I am really enjoying this book. All the effects are well thought out and is just a pleasure to perform. The book is certainly worth it's weight in Gold. There is a lot of effects in here and they are all workers. The production values are fairly good it has the feel of a self published book, so it's not as luxurious as some the VI books. But ultimately it's about the contents and on that score it delivers.
