With catchy, can’t-get-them-out-of-your-head songs by legendary Disney composer Alan Menken, Galavant is a show unlike any other on TV.  A musical comedy, The series follows the adventures of Galavant, a dashing knight hero down on his luck who is determined to reclaim his reputation and his “Happily Ever After” by going after the evil King Richard, who ruined it the moment he kidnapped the love of Galavant’s life, Madalena.  CG pirate ships, magic wizards, and battling armies were just some of the varied VFX shots we were asked to produce for this unique series.

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.

 

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.

 

 

Mastering Reel

 CBS Digital was tasked with the remastering in HD of one of the most iconic series in television history, Star Trek: The Next Generation.  Over the course of 3 years, we scanned all of the original negative film, re-conformed the episodes, and re-created all of the visual effects to match the original series.
