Flying Monsters

3D VFX and creature work for “Flying Monster 3D” 
Our first production with renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough was also our first venture into Stereoscopic IMAX productions. “Flying Monster 3D” was produced by Atlantic Productions for Sky, and we handled about 1/3 of the CG shots and all major creature builds. The film won several awards, including a BAFTA for Best Specialist Factual in 2011.

We don’t make dreams come true.

We make them real. And if you like what you’ve seen us do for others, imagine what we could do for you. Because what we’ve done is only the starting point. We are constantly reinventing our expertise and using it in previously unknown ways, blurring the edges between what’s real and what’s possible. All you have to do is watch, because we’re not just aiming for the rainbow – we want to go beyond. Contact us
