Hybride has recently completed seamless VFX work on Amazon Prime Video's newest series Jack Ryan, which premiered on Amazon Video on August 31, 2018. Teaming up once again with visual effects supervisor Erik Henry, Hybride artists skilfully crafted 222 undetectable visual effect shots for different sequences in all 8 episodes, for a total of 17 minutes of screen time.
For this first season of Jack Ryan, Hybride’s participation on the project involved designing strikingly realistic set extensions for refugee camps and army bases, creating digital doubles and hard surface vehicles, andalso included the creation of explosion effects and weapon enhancements for several scenes in the show. The studio also produced organic simulations, explosion and ballistic effects intensifications, in addition to creating different types of CG elements such as fences, vegetation, debris, and dust.
“Again and again the artists at Hybride deliver for me at a super high level”, said Erik Henry Senior Visual Effects Supervisor on the show. “On Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan the task was not an easy one, in that we needed a CG subway to interact very closely with our lead actor. Production supplied a lighting rig for interactive lighting to sweep over the actor. Next, the talented crew at Hybride produced multiple shots of the train seamlessly composited with the actor in what appears to be a dangerously close proximity. Hybride also extended a forward operating base in the Moroccan desert and also produced CG Blackhawks to add scope to the show. As always, they delivered on time and on budget. I can't wait for the next collaboration”.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan follows CIA analyst Jack Ryan who stumbles upon a suspicious series of bank transfers to Yemen. His search for answers pulls him from the safety of his desk job and catapults him into a deadly game of cat and mouse throughout Europe and the Middle East, with a rising terrorist figurehead preparing for a massive attack against the US and her allies.
Created by Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, Jack Ryan is produced by Paramount Television, Cuse’s Genre Arts, Platinum Dunes and Skydance Television.
