Warehouse 13: Getting More Animated in Season 3
In episode eight, one of the artifacts was a spray paint eating away at the building. And the heroes are trying to escape from it. The VFX team had plates and had to make the building crumble apart inside and out. They additionally had to build portions of the elevator shaft.
"I would say the fun of this season is that the executive producer has given us more freedom to be creative," Cranford offers. "But the difference between this season and last season is that we're pulling footage from the Red cameras and we're getting it here first. So we're having everything at our disposal right away, which is huge, because when we know that certain shots are going to be used, we're able to build on that very quickly, know the lighting, know everything way ahead of time, so it makes our stuff look way better this year.
