Following the success of season 1, ‘Altered Carbon’, Netflix’s famous cyberpunk series, is back for a second season.
As the lead VFX vendor, DNEG worked on all 8 episodes of season 2. The crew was tasked to build Harlan’s world, where the action is taking place throughout the season, and to create landmark buildings such as the Needlecast and the State House tower and key environment assets such as orbital platforms, planet firearms, and giant excavators. In addition to CG environment work, DNEG’s TV VFX team delivered a variety of complex FX simulations especially for Poe, one of the main protagonists of the series. DNEG’s Motion Graphics team enhanced the VFX with holograms and dramatic effects.
Overall a thousand shots were delivered for the second season of ‘Altered Carbon’. Click here to find out more about our work on the first season.
