The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead has firmly established itself as one of the most successful and popular TV series in the world. We have been doing VFX for this undead hit show since season 6, resulting in an Emmy nomination for our VFX Supervisor Staffan Linder and his team in 2016 (for their work on ep 609).

Above is a reel with some of our shots from season 6 and 7 and below assorted breakdowns from all seasons. Enjoy!

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
