Mackevision’s VFX department was once again brought in on Netflix’s hit series, Lost in Space.  After a successful partnership with Jabbar Raisani (VFX supervisor and director), Terron Pratt (VFX producer) and Marion Spates (VFX supervisor) in season 1, the creative team at Mackevision’s VFX department was called on for eight episodes in season 2.

This time around, as a major vendor for the VFX-driven adventure fiction series, Mackevision produced stunning effects, including complex water simulations, CG crowd robots, alien planet environments, and spacecraft animations to name but a few. The series premiered on Christmas Eve, 2019, and Mackevision’s VFX Supervisor, Juri Stanossek, was nominated for a prestigious VES award, for the work on the season finale.
