Keyframe Digital is Awarded Visual Effects for 13 One-Hour Episodes of New Fantasy-Noir Series, Lost Girl
Set to Debut in Fall On Showcase
Niagara-On-The-Lake, ON— Digital animation and visual effects studio Keyframe Digital Productions has begun producing the visual effects for 13 one-hour episodes of the new original fantasy-noir series, Lost Girl, according to Keyframe co-founders Clint Green and Darren Cranford. The series will air on Canada’s Showcase in the fall.
Prodigy Pictures developed Lost Girl in association with Canwest Broadcasting and Showcase. Executive Producers are Jay Firestone, Michelle Lovretta, Peter Mohan, Plato Fountidakis, and Paul Rapovski. Producer is Wanda Chaffey.
The series follows supernatural seductress Bo (Anna Silk), a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy of mortals. Growing up with human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door – until she drained her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. Now she has hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them in secret, as they have for millennia. Relieved yet horrified to find out that she is not alone, Bo decides to take the middle path between the humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.
Keyframe will perform all visual effects work, including on-set supervision with Green serving as visual effects supervisor and Cranford as director of visual effects.
The studio is also handling visual effects for the second season of the supernatural drama “Warehouse 13,” produced by Universal Cable Productions, returning to Syfy on July 6.
