Giving Camelot the National Geographic Look
The rest of the vfx involves set extensions, blood and guts, split screen work, rig removal and morphs. "This show was, like most, working to a schedule and a budget and, as such, there was no time or the luxury for tests or rehearsals. Save the Waterfall sequence, the visual effects were shot along with the production shooting schedule. These are filmic, National Geographic-type shoots: real-looking, in all kinds of weather, moving at the production's fast pace; this was a mean feat.
