Company brought on as sole Season 3 visual effects facility for Billy Bob Thornton-led streaming series.
Oscar and Emmy winning global VFX company Pixomondo has just announced they’ve been brought on to provide the visual effects for the upcoming third season of Amazon Prime Video’s hit series Goliath. The series, created by David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro, stars Billy Bob Thornton as a down-and-out attorney seeking redemption.
Pixomondo’s Michael Shelton is the overall VFX supervisor for the show, working alongside Goliath’s producer Aaron Greenberg, with Bojan Zoric and Celine Zoleta serving as the studio’s VFX supervisor and VFX producer, respectively. Goliath is executive produced by Lawrence Trilling (Parenthood), Geyer Kosinski (Fargo), and Jennifer Ames & Steve Turner (Boardwalk Empire).
Pixomondo - which recently wrapped 8 years of work on the HBO series Game of Thrones - was first brought in to work on a couple specific shots for Goliath’s second season. That work led to being tapped as the sole VFX house for the entire upcoming Season 3.
In addition to Goliath, Pixomondo is also working with Amazon on the superhero series The Boys, which premiered July 29, and the fantasy series Carnival Row, due out August 30. The new season of Goliath will begin streaming on Amazon this fall.
Pixomondo, which won an Academy Award for Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, recently finished work on the second seasons of The Orville and Star Trek: Discovery, respectively. Both sci-fi shows earned Pixomondo Emmy Award nominations in the Outstanding Special Visual Effects category, with the winner being announced at the September 22 awards ceremony.
The studio is also working on the Apple TV series For All Mankind, the Blumhouse horror pic The Hunt, as well as Roland Emmerich’s World War II film, Midway among other film and episodic projects.
