EGG VFX are delighted to announce the release of the much- anticipated Sky Original series Intergalactic- with all episodes available from April 30, 2021.
Despite the challenges of two COVID lockdowns, we supported Milk Visual Effects in London, taking advantage of EGG’s cutting edge and remote enabled infrastructure. EGG VFX's team of 12 artists, led by Aled Rhys Jones completed comp, cleanup and roto across 400 shot tasks in less than 27 weeks, and had a constructive part in look dev for a handful of sequences. We are extremely proud of all the work done by the whole team through the difficult circumstances of a worldwide pandemic.
Written by award-winning showrunner, Julie Gearey (Prisoners’ Wives, Cuffs, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Intergalactic tells the story of fearless young cop and galactic pilot, Ash Harper (Savannah Steyn), who has her glittering career ripped away from her after being wrongly convicted of a treasonous crime and exiled to a distant prison colony. But on the way there, Ash’s fellow convicts stage a mutiny and seize control of their prison transfer ship. With the flight crew dead, mob leader Tula Quik (Sharon Duncan-Brewster), is intent on reaching the free world – Arcadia – with her gang; and Ash is the only pilot who can get them there. Ash is forced to join them on the run towards a distant galaxy and an uncertain future.
Intergalactic also stars Eleanor Tomlinson, Thomas Turgoose, Natasha O’Keeffe, Oliver Coopersmith, Imogen Daines, new comer Diany Samba-Bandza, Parminder Nagra and Craig Parkinson.
