Celebrating one year in business, London-based VFX house Milk is currently serving as the lead VFX studio for Fox‘s action-thriller, 24: Live Another Day.
The company is creating a mix of CG and effects work for the series. In addition to the typical action-packed 24 repertoire of explosions, Milk has created the CG drones that chase Jack Bauer through London; blood enhancement; effects work including CG water, fire and smoke, and a range of effects to be revealed in upcoming episodes.
Set and shot in London, the series follows the exploits of agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). It is the first U.S. drama to shoot in the U.K. following the implementation of the high end TV tax incentive in April 2013.
“We were extremely excited to be asked to be part of a U.K. 24,” said Will Cohen, CEO and founder of Milk VFX. “Working on a high profile television show that is chasing transmission is always a challenge but Milk is well set up in terms of technical pipeline and experienced key crew to be able to turn around VFX shots very quickly, at a high standard.”
The company is also currently in production on the eighth season of Doctor Who for the BBC and the new TV drama Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell – a seven part mini-series due to be broadcast on BBC One in 2015.
In addition, the company is completing work on Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures‘ Hercules for director Brett Ratner.
