Atmosphere VFX Flying High on Strong Slate of Sci-Fi Projects
Atmosphere Visual Effects, the award-winning VFX house and leader in effects for sci-fi television programming, has just completed work on season three of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ (NBC Universal) as well as season three of ‘Stargate Atlantis’ (Sony), for which the studio is set to begin work on a fresh batch of episodes for the Fall.
Atmosphere has also completed work on the new ‘Babylon 5: The Lost Tales’ made-for-video movie (Warner Home Video/Warner Bros. Television). Entitled ‘Voices in the Dark,’ the movie will feature two all-new stories written and directed by the original creator of ‘Babylon 5,’ Executive Producer J. Michael Straczynski. Doug Netter returns to the ‘Babylon 5’ franchise as Executive Producer. Atmosphere Andrew Karr is serving as VFX Supervisor.
‘Visual effects on television, with the complexity and scale of a feature film, have played a crucial role in the success of sci-fi series on the small screen,’ said Atmosphere principal Jeremy Hoey. ‘We have been fortunate to have been able to contribute to some of the best entertainment currently being created.’
Atmosphere recently won the 2007 VES Award for ‘Outstanding Visual Effects in a Broadcast Series’ for the ‘Battlestar’ episode ‘Exodus.’
