The award winning drama series “Outlander” has been an international success ever since the launch in 2014. The intriguing story evolves around Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, and the series spins the genres of romance, science fiction, history and adventure into one unique brew unlike any other series.
Work on season 3 started in 2017 and was shared between our London and Stockholm studios. The work involved all kinds of VFX wizardry, including set extensions, matte paintings, animation, a CG albatross, FX and plenty of digital water!
In January 2018, episode 313 was nominated for a VES Award (“Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Photoreal Episode”). The production of the Goodbye Kansas effects for that episode was helmed by VES Award nominee Filip Orrby, Lead Compositing Artist Daniel Norlund and VFX Producer Matilda Olsson. (VFX Breakdown of our work with ep 313 above).
Hear Filip, Daniel and Matilda discuss the production of those effects in episode #11 of our podcast Yellow Brick Road.
Goodbye Kansas has continued to deliver VFX for season 4 and 5. The 5ht season premiered on Starz and Amazon on February 16th 2020.
