A Discovery Of Witches
A Discovery of Witches is a drama series based on the successful novel by Deborah Harkness, the first in her “All Souls Trilogy”. The series is produced by Bad Wolf and Sky productions and premiered on Sky in September 2018.
Goodbye Kansas teams in London and Stockholm delivered 560 VFX shots for the series, using every tool in the tool box to create a variety of effects including a CG stag, a digi double, CG props, set extensions, CG environments and plenty of “sorcery and magic” FX effects including particles, force fields and fire.
In episode #25 of our podcast Yellow Brick Road, VFX Supervisor Jim Parsons takes us behind the scenes of the production.
