Humanoid synthetics have become an inextricable part of society, obediently serving and protecting the human population. But what happens when these synths are given the right to consciousness and their own free will?
What The Flying Colour Company was asked to do
Create and deliver VFX shots for the second series of the sci-fi drama, produced by Kudos in association with Matador Films for C4/AMC.
How we did it
Having provided on-set visual effects supervision, TFCC then completed between 300 and 350 shots per episode using Autodesk Flame. Work included colouring actors’ eyes green, creating and adding backgrounds and building complete locations.
For episode one, TFCC provided shots for the mineshaft escape and added foliage and colour to the Qualia facility scenes. Bullet hits, synth-blood and Tasers were also added to a scene involving a shooting. In addition, TFCC worked with C4 Creative on three on-air commercials and provided digital off-air billboards.
Andrew Maddison, Jaime Leonard and Martin Goodwin completed the Flame work.
