London VFX house Milk is creating the visual effects for Fox TV’s 24: Live Another Day, currently showing on Sky 1 in the UK and around the world. In addition to the action-packed repertoire 24 is known for, Milk has also created the CG drones that chase protagonist Jack Bauer through London; blood enhancement; effects work including CG water, fire and smoke; explosions and a range of effects to be revealed in upcoming episodes.
Set and shot in London, 24: Live another Day follows the dramatic exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). It is the first US drama to shoot in the UK following the implementation of the high end TV tax incentive in April 2013.
Will Cohen, CEO and founder of Milk VFX commented, “We were extremely excited to be asked to be part of a UK 24. Working on a high profile television show that is chasing transmission is always a challenge but Milk is well set up in terms of technical pipeline and experienced key crew to be able to turn around VFX shots very quickly, at a high standard.”
Milk recently won a British Academy Television Craft Award for its visual effects work on the BBC’s Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. During its debut year Milk has also worked on the third series of Hartswood Films’ Sherlock, Sky’s TV special David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3D (Sky/Atlantic) and feature film 47 Ronin.
