London visual effects house Milk is celebrating their one year anniversary today and sent out a press release revealing that they’re the lead visual effects studio for 24: Live Another Day.
BAFTA award winning independent London VFX house Milk is creating the visual effects for Fox’s TV action-thriller, “24: Live Another Day” – part of its expanding roster of TV and feature projects, as it celebrates its debut year in business.
Milk is working with Fox as the lead VFX studio on “24: Live Another Day” – currently airing on Sky 1 in the UK and around the world – to create a mix of CG and effects work for the heart-stopping series. In addition to the typical action-packed “24” repertoire of explosions, Milk has so far created the CG drones that chase Jack Bauer through London; blood enhancement; effects work including CG water, fire and smoke; explosions and a range of effects to be revealed in upcoming episodes.
Set and shot in London, the 12 x 60′ event series “24: Live another Day” follows the dramatic exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). It is the first US drama to shoot in the UK following the implementation of the high end TV tax incentive in April 2013.
Will Cohen, CEO and Founder of Milk VFX said, “We were extremely excited to be asked to be part of a UK “24.” 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.”
Here’s a look at some of their work in the explosion-filled seventh episode.
