Two terms ago we featured visual effects specialists from around the world discussing their perspective on what it takes to be a visual effects supervisor. While hugely successful, we received feedback that people wanted to go inside a real production and do a case study on a real project being made. The complexity of doing this and the legal complications seemed, well, almost impossible. But we pulled it off.

For the first time that we are aware, a production agreed to partner
with fxphd to allow unparalleled access to a real production. Instead of
simply filming a making of, we were THE visual effects company for the
project. Last January, fxphd signed on to provide the visual effects for
the mini series Red Dwarf.
Shot entirely in the UK on multiple RED ONE cameras, this UK television
production airs this Easter in the UK. Mike Seymour, on set as the
second unit Director and Visual Effects Supervisor, discusses a major
production from the inside perspective of planning, shooting and posting
a major 3 part mini series. The Red Dwarf program is hugely popular in
the UK pulling record audiences when it last aired. This new special
finds all the original cast back for a massive intergalactic journey
that returns to the guys to Earth. Shot on location at famous UK
landmarks such as Coronation Street in Manchester and in studio at
Pinewood Shepperton Studios. The production choose to shoot on the RED
One cameras with extensive greenscreen compositing, virtual sets,
digital characters and a very real and serious production schedule: from
the end of principle photography until delivery fxphd delivered 262
shots in 27 days.
Of course we were not alone. FIN Design in Sydney provided brilliant
virtual set work and some 25 shots. The workload was also completed
through our fxphd Special Ops program a select team of 18 fxphd
members worked tirelessly around the globe
from India to the Ukraine, from Manchester to China
working on shots and producing outstanding work. The quality of which is
breathtaking on an episodic television show. This terms Background
Fundamentals will recount this production on a weekly basis
bringing a level of insight that otherwise wouldnt have een possible.
