Rocket Science VFX was recently featured in the popular visual effects publisher CG Society for our work on season 4 of The Expanse.
The article dives into the complex visual effects sequences RSVFX created as the main vendor for this season. It also touches on how Amazon’s web services helped to meet the demands of bigger projects like “Into The Badlands”, “The Boys” and “Hannibal” to name a few.
One of Rocket Science’s long term partners, “Murdoch Mysteries,” is set to premiere its brand new season on September 16th at 8 pm ET/8:30 pm NT on CBC. RSVFX is happy to be working again on this 1-hour crime drama, having delivered a wide spectrum of key shots and sequences for past seasons.
Set during the 1900s in Toronto Ontario, audiences follow Detective William Murdoch and his wife Dr. Julia Ogden, as they solve a string of murders throughout the city.
The very first clip for the book adaptation “Sweetness in the Belly” is out now, only days ahead of its worldwide premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
Based on author Camilla Gibb’s 2005 best-selling novel, this Toronto based drama stars Dakota Fanning, an orphan who works to reunite refugees with their families while also hoping to rekindle long lost love with the idealistic Doctor Aziz.
Rocket Science VFX played a significant role in bringing director, Zeresenay Mehari, vision to screen and can’t wait for viewers to watch it on September 7th at Scotiabank Theatre. For more information about the movie and how to buy tickets, click on this link: https://bit.ly/2lBIFCc
