Huge congratulations to our Cursed team whose work has been shortlisted in the Best VFX category in the Broadcast Tech Innovation Awards 2020!
The Broadcast Tech Innovation Awards celebrate the exceptional teams behind the most outstanding broadcast productions of the past year. Winners will be announced on 25 November 2020.
Adapted from Frank Miller and Thomas Wheeler’s animated novel, Netflix’ episodic series Cursed is a reimagining of the Arthurian legend told from the perspective of teenage sorceress Nimue (Katherine Langford).
Our team, lead by VFX supervisor Ciaran Crowley, created a variety of work on Cursed: 390 shots encompassing a pack of CG wolves developed from concept through to animation, with a forest environment in which Nimue fights with them; and a dramatic waterfall environment where a combat sequence takes place at the climax of the final episode.
Our brief also included a number of magical environments: the CG Culzean Castle and subterranean world environments for the Leper Kingdom; the underground chasm at Cailleach; digi-doubles of heroine Nimue and the Paladins for the waterfall sequence; the green Fey forge fire; and the glow and effects on the sword. The studio also created additional environments and effects, including chopping off the hands of the character Bors.
