Clark Schaffer


I’m a traditional FX/Matte artist with a great passion for the craft and artists of “how they used to do it.” I painted for a while early in my Hollywood career with greats like Bob Scifo, Syd Dutton, Jessie Silver, Ken Marschall and Ken Allen. Shortly after starting in the industry the computer killed the magic.
