Axis Studios’ VFX supervisor, Howard Jones, and head of production, Ella Askew, delivered CG for National Geographic’s, Hostile Planet. Narrated by survival instructor and TV presenter, Bear Grylls, the six-part series draws upon the volatile natural world and the animals that survive in it – mountain, ocean, grassland, jungle, polar, and desert environments all feature.

The team at Axis provided a full CG hurricane sequence, along with Earth renders using the Axis procedural planet tool. CG ravens were also created, as well as plant growth using Houdini in the ‘Jungles’ episode.
