Milk was lead VFX partner for Netflix’s Scoop, the drama about the run up to Emily Maitlis’ infamous Newsnight interview with Prince Andrew. Here’s the vfx breakdown for the show.

Led by VFX Supervisor Ciaran Crowley, along with 2D Supervisor Henning Glabbart, Milk helped create 259 shots, creatively managed the full process and provided onset supervision for the drama

As there are strict protocols around location and reality filming – it’s not permitted at the official Royal residences, Milk had to create and deliver the VFX and environment work from scratch. The most complex VFX craft was creating the CG environments. Milk used DMP and 2.5D projections to accurately recreate Buckingham Palace and added CG cars and crowd elements outside the gates along The Mall.

Ciaran Crowley, VFX Supervisor reflects on the process: “It’s always an interesting challenge to accurately reflect such iconic buildings such as Buckingham Palace and to do it justice with VFX. Scoop is a contemporary show with many topical and recognisable British scenes in it. The ambition is always to make post-production so slick that you wouldn’t know it’s VFX at all! We had a great relationship with Dazzle Pictures, who did all New York Environment work, Red Ring Entertainment and NetFX”

Full Milk VFX credits: Ciaran Crowley, Jo De Mey, Henning Glabbart, Connor Guyler, Miyuki Tatsuda, Simon Wicker, Charles-Henri Vidaud, Bahar Cetin, Craig Gemmil, Hope McAdams, Miranda Kay and Ben Thomas.

Scoop is now streaming on Netflix.
