This spring we were invited to help bring one of our favorite TV shows to life, the 3rd season of WESTWORLD by masterminds Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan for HBO.
Our VFX supervisor Jonathan Weber and his team designed everything from flying gunship drones to the Rehoboam super computer, digital make up effects that literally crawl under your skin, both when playing with fire and helping otherwise perfectly healthy actors pretend to be unarmed. RISE added more mayhem to one of the physical final showdowns adding blood and muzzle flashes.

It's always nice to work with friends - like when we returned to the swinging world of Babylon Berlin for Season 3, led by our VFX supervisor Erik Schneider. As building a single set representing all of Berlin is impossible, lots of set extensions needed to be built following the architecture of the pre-WWII era and famous sites were recreated that were destroyed during the war based on photographic reference. Cars were animated, trams needed to speed through the streets and thousands of CG crowd digi-doubles made the city come alive.

Bablyon Berlin Season 3 is now out on Sky Europe and soon everywhere around the world streaming and on TV.

RISE VFX supervisor Oliver Hohn was given the chance to develop photorealistic CG armies and CG horses with his team for the TV drama "Kingdoms of Fire" in 2019. To spice things up, explosions and fire were added to the epic battle scenes, sometimes as FX simulations and sometimes as elements shot on location. As an additional challenge several camera teams were at work in parallel during the battles and needed to be covered up with more CG soldiers and CG horses. Battlefields were dressed with corpses and armies equipped with CG flags.
