The second BAFTA Guru interview on VFX, with contributions from Model Unit Supervisor Mike Tucker, is now live on the BAFTA Guru website, and on YouTube.
Hear from the visual effects experts behind Avatar, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Iron Man, Doctor Who and Sherlock on how they bring the impossible to life on screen, how technology has changed the visual effects process and how beginners can get their start in the industry.
Following our work on the 50th Anniversary episode of Doctor Who, more of our model shots will feature in Matt Smith’s final episode, The Time of the Doctor, which airs on Christmas Day on BBC One. In addition, Model Unit Supervisor Mike Tucker is due to appear in the episode, albeit in the guise of an iconic villain!
