Our Sherlock VFX team here at Milk were delighted to receive a BAFTA Cymru Award nomination for their work on Hartswood Films/BBC’s Sherlock series four, in the special and visual effects category.

Milk received the nomination alongside practical effects company Real SFX. We’re looking forward to the award ceremony takes place on Sunday 8th October 2017 in St David’s Hall, Cardiff.

More about Sherlock series four –

Milk supported Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss in bringing to life the thrillingly tense and often surreal story – and the sometimes physically impossible action – with 90 visual effects shots, including effects, digital matte painting, 2D, animation and 2D clean ups. Key effects sequences include Sherlock’s handbag deduction scene, the explosion in Sherlock’s flat,  Sherlock walking up the wall of a room his flat and the devastating fire in the Holmes’ childhood home.

The hotly anticipated three-episode series made its debut on BBC One on New Year’s Day 2017 and in cinemas worldwide. Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson returned in Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ contemporary take on Conan Doyle’s most iconic adventures, in which Sherlock faces an adversary more relentlessly tortuous and deadly than Moriaty – his secret sister Eurus.
