1899 Tuesday 4 May 2021
We're thrilled to get our first look at the highly anticipated show 1899, the new series from Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar who brought us DARK. The eight episodes follow the mysterious circumstances around the voyage of an immigrant ship, with passengers from different backgrounds and nationalities united by their hopes and dreams for a new future.
VFX Supervisor Christian Kaestner is leading our integrated visualisation, virtual production and VFX teams. Filming will take place in the largest LED "Volume" virtual production stage in Europe and aims to deliver highly complex visual effects shots powered by game engine technology. We're also very excited to work with the brilliant Dark Bay - Europe's first permanently installed LED-studio for virtual productions.
