Merry Christmas to u all! Some good news! For all of you who remembers the 1983 series of V, now it’s back with vfx by Zoic studios.

For you who doesn’t remember….

V was a popular science-fiction TV series that debuted in 1983. Audiences were drawn to its potent mixture of alien invasion and fascist allegory. The “Visitors” initially claim to be a peaceful humanoid race with advanced, space faring technology intent on helping mankind. The resistance, a small group of renegade scientists and ordinary people ultimately discover their true reptilian nature and evil plot to eradicate humanity. In 2009 V has returned.

V has returned as a re-imagined, 9/11-infused update on ABC with groundbreaking new visual effects provided by sci-fi veterans, Zoic Studios (Battlestar Galactica, Firefly and District 9).

Avatar in 3D. Just see it!

I just came back from the cinema watching James Cameron’s AVATAR in 3D. I must say I was a bit sceptical.
I’m overwhelmed by all the visual effects and the great film. If you are going to see one film this year or the next one, see Avatar in 3D. Great experience. If Avatar doesn’t win the academy award for best vfx, then i’ll be really surpriesd. Weta and he other vfx companies has taken the next step towards the future in vfx. So big thanks and congratulations to all the people that has been working on it. GREAT WORK!
Here are some Swedes in the production… Give them some applause!

Mathias Larserud …. visual effects artist
Pär Tingström …. digital modeler: weta digital
Tor-Bjorn Olsson …. texture artist
