The Walking Dead S8

Our VFX work on season 8 of The Walking Dead involved plenty of digital walkers, and this gave us the opportunity to take full advantage of the fact that we have our very own in-house Motion Capture studio.

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
