The Hybride team was thrilled to have been able to embark on another pirate adventure, contributing seamless VFX for "Black Sails". Teaming up once again with visual effects supervisor Erik Henry, Hybride artists crafted no less than 123 VFX shots for 3 episodes of the highly popular television series.
For this second season, Hybride designed strikingly realistic set extensions and virtual environments, in addition to conceiving and animating CG objects. The studio also generated photo-real 3D CG fire, smoke and embers, and also accentuated explosions.
A prequel to the classic Robert Stevenson novel "Treasure Island," "Black Sails" is a pirate adventure that centers on the tales of Captain Flint, who has a reputation throughout the West Indies as being the most brilliant, most feared of all the Golden Age pirates.
Black Sails Season 2 premiered on Starz! January 24, 2015.
