The week we go for gold (14.4.23)

The Second Star to the Right

Disney treated us to another look at Neverland this week, releasing a second trailer for Peter Pan & Wendy. Montreal and Mumbai have worked their VFX wizardry, led by VFX Supervisor Mark Curtis, to bring David Lowery’s vision to life. We’ll be taking a trip past the second star to the right and straight on to Disney+ when the film releases on 28th April.

Plus get to know Wendy herself, Ever Anderson, in this interview with the Evening Standard Magazine.

One Last Ride

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn shared a new tv spot promoting the third film. He also surprised some of the VFX crew with a Zoom call to thank everyone for their hard work, recognising the amazing contributions of all of our studios across MTL, LDN, VAN and MUM. A cosmic well-done to VFX Supervisors Stephane Naze, Ross McCabe, Alexis Wajsbrot and all who worked on the film.

Sky Stream- Pathway to Sky

To represent the freedom and ease of Sky’s new streaming box, obstacles such as cables, satellite dishes and paperwork are transformed into bursts of colourful dust particles in the Sky spectrum colours.

With approximately 5 weeks from edit lock to delivery, the campaign marks a continuation in Framestore’s long-standing relationship with Sky Creative. The spectrum burst was created in CG with the VFX complementing the in-camera practical effects.

Mrs. Maisel’s Final Encore

Catch the first three episodes of Mrs. Maisel’s final season on Prime Video today, and be sure to keep an eye out for stunning period work done by our New York-based VFX team that will transport you back to the swinging 1960s. Be prepared for a farewell to remember!

We’re delighted that Nike’s ‘Footballverse’ has claimed two Golds in the Film Craft (Visual Effects) and Branded Entertainment & Content. Our work on Tide’s Marvel collaboration also received Gold for Branded Entertainment & Content, and Asda’s ‘Have Your Elf a Merry Christmas’ was also shortlisted for its Visual Effects. A huge congrats to all clients and teams involved!
