30 episodes of Ash vs Evil Dead were filmed over three seasons. The show features a high volume of complex visual effects work delivered by a talented complement of New Zealand vendors. Cause and FX were major contributors, working closely with the production team to finish some of the most outrageous VFX shots in the series.
ASH VS EVIL DEAD
Cause and FX worked with the production’s chosen animation vendor, who created ‘Kandar the Destroyer’. What began as a clay model designed by the prosthetics department was reconstructed digitally and passed to Cause to composite and add finishing touches. Cause VFX artists added 3D fire sims, environmental vapour and mist before moving into 2D to complete this gigantic fire-breathing beast in the epic season bonanza.
The Cause and FX team took care of hundreds of shots throughout the three Ash vs Evil Dead seasons. Many of those were important shots carrying powerful storytelling moments.
“It’s immeasurably valuable to have a strong yet friendly overview of the ‘battlefield’, and Cause and FX gave us that. Cause offers strong creative and technical support from an invested team. They respond dynamically to anything, of any complexity, that a project throws at them. We could always trust Cause and FX’s work – with optimism.”
