The eight-part series was filmed in Wales, France and Pinewood Studios[1] in the first half of 2016[3] and marked the first time a continental-European public national broadcaster has collaborated with a major subscription video on demand platform, a global distributor and a British production company, on an English-language drama.

BREAKDOWN/DMP

Atomic Arts  completed all the VFX work for ‘The Collection’ set in 1948. As with any period dramas, while you can still find locations in the world that have kept the same architecture of the past, modern technology means you have to ‘de-modernise’ the street furniture, cars, street technology and often horizons need to be reconstituted using digital matte paintings.

At Atomic we pride ourselves in 2.5 D work. This means taking photographs, photogrammetry (high resolution images from multiple angles to create photo real models and textures) as well as creating buildings from scratch and create an environment fit for the times. This is usually heavily composited (2D) but often requires basic modelling and lighting from a 3D environment designed and created within the computer (3D). Hence the term 2.5D.
