Yellow Brick Road

#25 – A Discovery Of Witches – and Vampires

In episode #25 we meet Compositing Supervisor Jim Parsons from Goodbye Kansas London and talk about the VFX work on the TV series “A Discovery of Witches”. How do you convey “vampire speed” without making it look silly, why have vampires started to drink wine and how has the portrayal of vampires and witches evolved through the years?
