What projects have you worked on? And what was your favourite?
Working on the Alienist for TNT which is now on Netflix was an amazing experience. The stand out memory from this project was being involved in a show that won an Emmy and getting a chance to see one of those awards in person. We did some great work on the series, long hours and some of the time we went up to the wire. There’s one particular shot in a later episode which I was heavily involved in and to see the finished article was very satisfying.
What are you working on at the minute?
We’re currently working on a follow up to The White Princess, on Starz, which we did back in 2016, called The Spanish Princess. It’s part of a series of books which dramatises the events of a very interesting period of British Medieval history during the War of the Roses. The 3D requirements have been mostly layouts and environment work, building cityscapes and street extensions, as well as a big sequence involving fluid sims. This has involved both Maya and XSI.
