The team from Zoic Studios is flying high today with news of its Emmy Nomination ?Outstanding Special Visual Effects For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Special for Battlestar Galactica.
With over 400 shots to complete, the Zoic team worked for seven months utilizing Lightwave and combustion to create CG Cylons, Centurions, Vipers and virtual environments. The result is a show where effects were a key storytelling device and an exciting way of transporting audiences into the world of Battlestar Galactica. For many, this was the opportunity for which they have been waiting decades. Others experienced this world for the first time with fresh eyes and ears. The result was a popular miniseries that will premiere as a series in January 2005, with Zoic Studios as the effects team.
