Milk Delivers Effects to ‘Doctor Who’ Special

Milk Visual Effects contributed to BBC’s 3D Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode, “The Day of the Doctor,” creating a series of large-scale CG environments, action shots and CG spacecraft in stereoscopic 3D. Milk created 129 visual effects shots, including the dramatic sequences featuring the Gallifreyan city of Arcadia under siege at the hands of the Daleks, and fly-through shots of the city intended to immerse the television audience.

The Milk team also created 3D paintings set in London’s National Gallery through which characters witness this catastrophic battle and which form the entry point for the viewer to fly into the city. One of the biggest challenges was creating a framed painting that appears to be a two dimensional object but which, when the camera moves around it, is revealed to be a full 3D environment with depth.
