DazPix was asked by BAFTA winning Director Ben Chanan to create some VFX shots for the Channel 4 docu drama – BLACKOUT.
The shot featured here involved some heavy motion tracking, layering and compositing using after effects.
Blackout is a meticulously researched drama exploring the effects of a devastating cyber-attack on Britain’s national electricity grid.
When Britain suffers a catastrophic nationwide power failure, members of the public record what they can on cameras and phones. As the country descends into anarchy, a cast of ordinary characters struggle to feed and protect themselves and their families. This is the story of Britain’s week without electricity, told by those kept filming to the end.
