Our Louise Hastings and Dominic Alderson were down at the VFX Festival in London’s Shoreditch yesterday to deliver a talk and answer questions on the visual effects for Doctor Who Christmas special episode “Twice Upon A Time”.
A milestone Doctor Who episode – as Peter Capaldi’s last and Jodie Whitaker’s first – Louise and Dom revealed their approach to the regeneration sequence; the process of creating the Glass Woman; freezing time and falling snow in the South Pole and bringing to life the iconic Dalek creatures.
They also chatted to the Escape team about their favourite VFX moment of this year…
Team Milk’s Chris West, Rory Jones were down at the VFX festival too, along with Dom, to deliver a 2d and 3d showreel and CV clinic session at the Festival, providing tips and advice to industry newcomers.
