Flame and The Missing: TFCC in Broadcast

Flame and The Missing: TFCC in Broadcast

The Flying Colour Company featured twice in this week’s Broadcast magazine (dated 14 October 2016), for both its new Flame suite and its work on The Missing 2 (pictured, above).

Both articles appeared in the Technology and Facilities section.


Visual effects firm The Flying Colour Company (TFCC) has installed an additional Autodesk Flame suite in its Carnaby Street facility.

Running on an HP Z840 workstation, the system was bought from XTFX and will be used initially by freelance artists. The company is currently recruiting for a permanent operator. TFCC has also installed a data storage server, purchased from ERA, that increases its in-house storage by 360 terabytes.
