Blue Spill worked in conjunction with ITV’s 3Sixtymedia to deliver a range of VFX shots for BBC’s new Danny Baker sitcom starring Peter Kay, Cradle to Grave.
We worked on episodes four through to eight, on an average of 30 VFX shots per episode. There was a great range of shots, most of which were helping to cement the series in 1970’s. Some were relatively straightforward – like removing satellite dishes from the sides of houses. Others were more complicated, such as splitting action over two takes on moving shots. There were also a few super fun shots, like adding a shower of digital maggots (hmmmm tasty!)
We really enjoyed working on the series, working on Autodesk Smoke 2016, under the direction of VFX supervisor Tanvir Hanif. There was even a write up in Broadcast Now with a Blue Spill mention! Watch it Thursdays 9pm, BBC
