Visual Effects

Our team of skilled VFX artists have created a variety of visual effects for networks such as Netflix, Amazon, ABC, Fox, and HBO, as well as many others.  Using the latest technology and VFX tools, the team at CBS Digital aspires to exceed the visions of our clients and deliver exceptional work, which is showcased in this reel.

 

 

Grandfathered | Visual Effects

Produced by ABC for Fox Television, “Grandfathered” features John Stamos as James “Jimmy” Martino, a 51-year-old, lifelong bachelor and successful restaurant owner who discovers that he has both a son and a granddaughter.  The VFX for the series ranged from text message bubbles to set extensions and flaming turkeys!  One particular episode called for a CG drone, which projected a short animated love letter on the wall of an apartment building.  Always a fun and quirky series to work on.

 

Mars Needs Moms | Animation

When Martians abduct Milo’s mom in “Mars Needs Moms” by Walt Disney Pictures, Milo must find a way to bring her back to Earth with the help of his new alien friends.  CBS Digital’s VFX team brings this movie’s Toolkit to life by animating break-dancing Martians, a beat-dropping DJ robot, and a malfunctioning transporter operator.

 

 

G-Force | Animation

The Walt Disney Studios-Creative Content division tasked CBS Digital with animating the marketing toolkit for their action-packed, family-fun film, “G-Force.”   In Disney’s “G-Force,” a specially trained squad of guinea pigs is dispatched to stop a diabolical billionaire from taking over the world.  Our VFX team animated and composited the furry spies in a series of mini-adventures, such as going airborne, parachuting, karate-chopping, and of course, playing baseball, among other things.

CBS Digital created the marketing toolkit for the 6th installment of the hugely successful Fast & Furious franchise.   The movie’s iconic cars spin, donut, catapult, etc. across the screen thanks to our 2D and 3D VFX team.

 

 

Animation Reel

Creatures, cars, animals, and insects CBSD can model, rig, and animate whatever you can imagine.  Our team of expert 3D artists has worked on projects for Disney, Pixar, Fox, and more.  We can bring your ideas to life.

 

 

Misc VFX

 

Wire removals, paint outs, beauty work, etc.  While we can handle large and elaborate visual effect shots, sometimes the smaller visual effects matter most.  CBS Digital’s goal is to make sure that our VFX are invisible and aid in the storytelling, not distract from it.

 

 

Monitor Comps

Whether it is a TV screen, computer monitor, cell phone, or Ipad we can comp any footage or graphic needed in post.  From simple burn-ins to elaborate tracking shots with actors crossing in front of the screen we have you covered.

 

 

Fixes

Post production fixes can pop up unexpectedly and occasionally at the last minute.  Is a boom mic or crew member in the shot?  Did Standards and Practices come back with notes about logos or signage?  CBSD has solved many of these problems for productions quickly and within budget.

 

 

Transparent

Amazon’s multiple Golden Globe and Emmy winning show, Transparent, revolves around a Los Angeles family and their lives following the discovery that the person they knew as their father is transgender.   For three seasons we have created a wide range of visual effects for the show.  From basic green screen comps and matte painting to more elaborate shots, such as a full CG chest replacement for a character with a double mastectomy, we support the narrative of this groundbreaking series.
