Working with HBO Films and Steven Soderbergh’s brilliant team, shade created complex yet invisible transformations for “Behind the Candelabra”. The team at shade made it appear that star Michael Douglas played piano perfectly, appeared on archival footage of “The Tonight Show” and digitally subtracted pounds and vitality from him on his death bed.
In this action packed sequel, shade teams up with Sony and Supervisor Edwin Rivera to deliver stadiums of tens of thousands of virtual fans, exploding helmet cars and digital fire!
Shade and HBO team up again for some amazing effects and fantastic content. Shade created several surreal CG character moments and many supporting visual effects for this acclaimed miniseries directed by Lisa Cholodenko.
Shade vfx is officially open in NYC. Our NY facility, located in midtown Manhattan boasts a full team of over 25 vfx experts and producers. Shade NYC already has several projects under it’s belt and is currently in production on Marvel’s “Daredevil” for Netflix.
After seeing shade’s amazing work in “Behind The Candelabra” Jon Favreau’s team got shade on board to handle all of the graphics and vfx for his upcoming indie extravaganza “Chef”. From CG foodtrucks to photoreal storytelling through social media, shade provided Favreau with the magic he needed to tell this great story.
