"The idea is, what if you could do something mindblowing, and how would you deal with that in your life," said Mark Kolpack, vfx supervisor.
The vfx, created by Stargate Digital, are not front and center, but rather subtle, part and parcel of the show, he adds. "It's done in a way that's not about making it like a comic. The show isn't like a comic book, but it's visually inspired by that kind of look. We want to catch the viewer by surprise, just as the character is caught by surprise."
