Watch: Integrating the Visual Effects Into “Chernobyl”

“[‘Chernobyl’] was to be completely story-driven where VFX would provide support for the drama in every shot.”

Chernobyl was never about telling the story through gratuitous, scary visuals with the intention to shock,” explains the DNEG team about its VFX work on the HBO limited series. “Instead, it was to be completely story-driven where VFX would provide support for the drama in every shot. Any VFX had to feel and look authentic and ultimately—plausible. While many VFX shots had live-action plate integration, there were also many full CG shots which also had to seamlessly match the tone, style and feel of the surrounding drama shots.”
