Queen Sono

 6 Add to collection

“Over time our roots will get deeper in Africa and South Africa, and we’re moving pretty quickly to that now, and plan to invest more in local content.” – Erik Barmack – Netflix’s VP international originals.

Queen Sono – Netflix’s first Original African series. A thrilling action and spy show mixed with the perfect amount of drama sprinkled in.

Chocolate Tribe was the main VFX vendor on the show delivering around 300 shots across 6 episodes.

 Our VFX team joined Diprente early on during the pre-production process, planning all the bigger (and smaller) VFX scenes the show had in store. At the end, we created CGI military planes, militia camps set extensions, terrorist explosions and car crashes, enhanced various shoot-outs and stunt scenes, and filled the FNB football stadium with a massive crowd, just to name a few of the VFX scenes.

This was a truly rewarding production and we would like to congratulate and thank every crew member who made this exiting show a reality.
