Tin Star


Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks star in a tale of corruption of innocence, of murder, of grief and of all-consuming revenge – set against the backdrop of a remote and beautiful Canadian mountain town.

What The Flying Colour Company was asked to do

Create and deliver 2D and 3D VFX shots for the Kudos-produced drama in which a former British detective, now a police chief, brings his family to the tranquil town of Little Big Bear only to encounter waves of organised crime.

How we did it

The Flying Colour Company creative director Dominic Thomson provided on-set supervision on location in Canada for approximately two months and then oversaw the asset builds and shot creation back in the UK.

Various environment and green-screen work was completed, including adding mountains to backgrounds, augmenting a gas station and compositing an elk onto a road in front of a car.

Jaime Leonard, Andrew Maddison, Fabio Vona and Fasa Oyibo, supported by Sarah Buisson, completed the 705 shots using Autodesk Flame.
