We’re currently in production (as sole VFX vendor) creating the VFX for Amazon’s much anticipated Good Omens – the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s cult comedy novel. The six-part series is set to air in 2019 on Amazon and the BBC.
Shooting on location in the UK and South Africa has now wrapped (and our VFX Supe JC Deguara is back in the studio with the Milk Good Omens VFX team ) and we’ve been very much enjoying director Douglas McKinnon and showrunner Neil Gaiman fabulous twitter updates.
David Tennant who plays Crowley (in Gaiman’s words; the coolest and most delightful of demons) has – according to the Radio Times – teased the series as being “unlike anything” he has ever worked in before, saying: “It’s quite hard tonally to get a grip on what Good Omens is, because it’s this very unique world that comes from Terry and Neil’s novel and from the scripts, which Neil has adapted pretty faithfully from that novel,” he told The Herald. “I think it’s quite unlike anything I’ve ever been in before and possibly anything many people have seen before.” (We love this)
He continued: “It’s like a sort of fairy tale with a kind of very real world setting. It’s a farce and it’s also deeply serious, it’s all things at once and not quite any one of them. If the rest of the show turns out like this early trailer that we’ve all seen I think it’s going to be quite special.”
So, we’re pretty excited!
