Zoic Studios Creates More VFX For V
Press Release from Zoic Studios
V returns from hiatus tonight at 10 PM/9 Central on ABC, with Zoic Studios once again producing the visual effects for the popular science fiction drama series.
Zoic's creative director, Andrew Orloff, discussed his excitement for the upcoming episodes: "It's a big season, with a lot of surprises and a lot of new stuff. We're spending a lot more time on the mothership," says Orloff. "We're getting a lot more into Anna, and the Vs and what they are really up to. We can't give away too much, but there's a lot happening, and a lot more to the visual effects -- it's going to be very cool. We're continuing with the virtual set work we've been doing, and the virtual prosthetic work."
The virtual sets are created with Zoic Studios' proprietary Zeus system, which utilizes a smart stage and game engine technology to provide realtime rendering of virtual sets, so that actors, shot on greenscreen, appear within the virtual set in camera.
"We'll see a lot more of the V technology," he continues. "We're going to see a lot more of the V physiology; we're going to see more of everything. We're working a lot to create the reality of the whole environment. It's going to be a lot of fun. They're really pushing the limits - it's something that's going to be really unprecedented as far as the scope of it. The scope is expanding astronomically for the first couple of episodes."
