Jack Ryan | Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in an Episode

Winner | 2019 | VES

We collaborated on scenes for Amazon’s original series’ first episode, in which CIA analyst Jack Ryan finds himself plunged into a dangerous mission in the Middle East to find those responsible for an imminent terrorist threat.

We completely transformed a harmless building into a highly guarded US embassy in Yemen, adding armoured vehicles, military personnel, concrete blocks and barbed wire. Our compositing work also integrated characters and other elements shot on green screen.

Using matte paintings and set extensions, we transformed the scene into a bustling city, adding buildings, communication towers and a commanding American flag to crown the main building.
