The Call Up

Feature Film

We designed and completed all the VFX on sci-fi feature film, The Call Up, from Stigma Films and Red and Black Films.

 

Working closely with the production team, we were involved in the project from the script stage right through to the final stages of post-production, presenting conceptual ideas to the director before the shoot and providing on-set VFX Supervision throughout the filming process. Our main challenge was successfully blending the real world and the game world, and the transitions between the two.

 

The film premiered at Sci-Fi London in May 2016.
