World on Fire is a war drama series written by Peter Bowker. The mini-series follows the hidden lives of ordinary people from Britain, Poland, France, Germany and the USA during World War II. The drama switches its scenes between various locations in France, Britain, Germany and Poland.
Atomic Arts did a range of 2D and 3D work for 'World on Fire', including a lot of environment work. Since much of the film is set in the summer months yet shot in the winter, we were asked to remove snow & add leaves to bare trees, both in the foreground and background of many shots - some shots required full 3d leaf generation and composition back into complex moving camera work with characters passing in between. Changing the seasons is nothing for Atomic!
