From Academy Award-nominated Luca Guadagnino, the HBO/Sky series “We Are Who We Are” is a story about two American kids who live on a U.S. military base in Italy. The series explores friendship, first-love, identity, and immerses the audience in all the messy exhilaration and anguish of being a teenager.

Working on all eight episodes, the One Of Us team, led by Theo Demiris, delivered around 400 visual effects shots, most of which dealt with the environment of the base and the surrounding Veneto marshland.

Extending the limited set of buildings on location required the use of CG architecture, roads, street furniture, trees and plants.

We Are Who We Are is an HBO-Sky co-production; showrunner, executive producer, writer, director Luca Guadagnino; executive produced by Lorenzo Mieli for The Apartment and Mario Gianani for Wildside, both Fremantle companies, with Small Forward, alongside Guadagnino, Elena Recchia, Nick Hall, Sean Conway, and Francesco Melzi d’Eril; Paolo Giordano and Francesca Manieri write alongside Guadagnino. International Distributor: Fremantle.

Seasonal adjustments to trees, skies and weather were also required.
