Working on Legends & Lies: The Patriots was quite the experience. We at Splice were asked to create full living and breathing period accurate CG scenes and environments of New York and Boston for multiple episodes throughout the season. Most of the time this was done without much more than what we read on the script page. We enjoyed this challenge greatly as the production trusted us to come up with dynamic and cool looking shots.
One favorite shot in particular was the opening shot to Season 2. It starts with the camera flying over water, through ships and past the docks of colonial Boston. This shot was one that had a lot of moving pieces; water sims, animated ships, cloth sims, crowd sims and environmental effects just to name a few. Visit our VFX Vimeo channel.
