As audiences tune in to the exciting new FX Network series ‘Dirt’ featuring Courteney Cox (Tuesday at 10pm), they will undoubtedly notice the visual effects that add a unique dimension to the wild twists and turns of the each episode. Engine Room VFX is the exclusive visual effects company on the series, with Andrew Honacker and Michael Caplan as Visual Effects Supervisors.
‘It is always exciting to be a part of a show with so much buzz and media energy around it and ‘Dirt’ certainly falls into that category,’ says Michael Caplan. ‘It has also been a pleasure collaborating with the producers on a creative level. While the show is not specifically effects-driven, they continue to dream up fantastic concepts and essentially let us run with them. From the beginning they have afforded us a great deal of license in bringing their visions to the screen resulting in not only an enjoyable overall experience but in my opinion a better final product. Needless to say we are looking forward to many more episodes to come.’
On ‘Dirt,’ Cox plays “Lucy Spiller,” the editor-in-chief of Dirt Now, the country’s most widely read tabloid. Lucy possesses a maniacal dedication to exposing the truth about celebrities, for reasons she has yet to fully fathom. The series revolves around the dynamic Spiller, a schizophrenic paparazzo, a struggling actor trying to make a name for himself and his A-list, movie-star girlfriend.
Dirt was created by Matthew Carnahan, who is also an executive producer of the series. Joel Fields, Courteney Cox and David Arquette are executive producers. FX, Touchstone Television and Coquette produce the series.
