Eden FX Signed To Produce CG For Two New Fall TV SeriesCreates special effects for NBC’S “Surface” and ABC’S “Invasion” (September 20, 2005)
Eden FX, which specializes in the design and production of visual effects work for all facets of the entertainment industry, has been signed to produce original CG visual effects for two major new Fall 2005 TV series, NBC’s “Surface,” and ABC’s “Invasion.” The two new series join Eden’s contributions to “Commander in Chief,” and its on-going contributions to the hit TV series “Lost,” “Alias,” and “Navy: NCIS.” The announcement was made today by Eden FX co-presidents John Gross and Mark Miller.
Regarding the new assignments, Mr. Gross said, “We are thrilled to be working on these two new, high-profile, effects-heavy series. They are creatively challenging and utilize our capabilities to the fullest in terms of character animation, digital matte paintings and compositing. I am extremely pleased with the company’s continuing growth in television effects.”
For client Rockfish Films and NBC Universal, Eden FX’s primary visual effects work on “Surface” is the creation and animation of CG creatures. These digital actors must integrate seamlessly into the live action plates. In addition to the extensive character animation, the company is also creating CG water effects, underwater digital environments and photorealistic CG vehicles.
The storyline of “Surface” revolves around the question of what the world would be like if a new form of sea life began to appear in locales all over the Earth? Naval officers in the South Antarctic Sea, a family in San Diego, the Oceanographic Institute in Monterey, and fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico find out in this new series, in which innocent sea creatures may be more than they seem. The series stars Lake Bell.
For client Warner Bros Television and ABC, Eden FX is providing an array of CG visual effects for the series “Invasion. These include the creation and composition of CG water, vehicles and environments as well as extensive matte paintings and set extensions.
The storyline for “Invasion” poses the question, What if aliens were already here on planet Earth, living among us? And what if all of the natural disasters the world has been experiencing recently were smokescreens designed to mask something far more ominous? Florida Sheriff Russell Poole (William Fichtner) begins to investigate strange goings on, and in so-doing, unwittingly begins a fight for the survival of the human race. The series is being Executive-produced by Shawn Cassidy.
In addition to "Surface" and "Invasion," EDEN FX also did the CG creation of "Air Force One" for both the PILOT and EPISODE # 6 editions of ABC TV’s new "Commander in Chief” series starring Gena Davis.
