VFX work description

RISE was responsible for all VFX in the Television Mini Series. Nothing was shot on location, all exteriors of the Adlon Hotel and the Brandenburg Gate were shot in Munich at the Bavaria Studios in front of green screen. The visual effects team at RISE Cologne added historically accurate digital models of the Hotel and the Brandenburg Gate including all surrounding buildings at the Pariser Platz. (LIDAR was used)
