Axis Studios was charged with recreating an entire CG Elizabethan London for the second season of Sky One’s original drama, A Discovery of Witches. The Axis team delivered 100 shots for 10 episodes over a span of 18 months, which included working throughout the challenges of the COVID pandemic.
Grant Hewlett, VFX Supervisor at Axis, comments, “Being invited onto ADoW season two was a huge honour. The massive-scale period environment work was the largest award on the show and presented no small challenge. We saw it as an opportunity to unite Axis’ experience in FX, animation and environments and deliver something that matched the show’s ambition.”
