The Oscar, BAFTA and Emmy-winning studio was involved in the show 'His Dark Materials' from pre-production onwards, helping to bring to life the world inhabited by Lyra, Pan, Iorek and Mrs Coulter. Framestore worked on some 2,000 shots, creating everything from the environments to 50+ photoreal dæmons and the panserbjørne that inhabit Bad Wolf's epic adaptation of the Philip Pullman classic.
Fiona Walkinshaw, Framestore’s global managing director of film, said: “We’re all incredibly proud of 'His Dark Materials', and it’s a tremendous boost to see the team’s hard work recognised by BAFTA - particularly for those who are currently delivering season two.
Our creatives worked hand-in-glove with the show’s producers, cast and crew throughout the entire process, I think the collaborative nature of the work really shows when you see how seamlessly live action mixes with pure CG. I’d like to offer my thanks and congratulations to everyone who worked on season one - particularly VFX supervisor Russell Dodgson, who led Framestore’s work with such determination and passion.”
