Outpost VFX Completes Latest Project

News Image
Outpost VFX has completed work on one of its latest projects, Netflix Original, My Beautiful Broken Brain. It tells the story of 34-year-old Lotje Sodderland's journey into the fragile and complex wonder of her brain following a life-changing hemorrhagic stroke.

The film by Sodderland, David Lynch and Director Sophie Robinson contains footage captured by Sodderland in the weeks after she woke up from an induced coma. After regaining consciousness, she was thrown into a new existence of distorted reality where words held no meaning and where her sensory perception had changed.

The project included over 110 VFX shots, all of which were created by Outpost VFX, Supervised by Elena Estevez Santos. The VFX were used to support the representation of Sodderland's vision of the world. The team developed two different looks, one for the POV after the stroke that was colourful, timeless and surreal, and another for the POV after the seizure, which was nightmarish ghostly and scary.

The VFX Outpost created were praised by both Sodderland and Robinson.

"I feel so grateful to have found you, and for the almost wordless symbiosis among us all which conspired to create this sensational visual story," said Lotje Sodderland.

"The visuals look completely amazing in the film. They lift it to a whole new level," Sophie Robinson added.

Outpost VFX has also announced the addition of Geraint Hixson to its team as VFX Producer. Geriant's credits include The Martian, Suicide Squad and X-Men Apocalypse, as well as advertising campaigns Mercedes and Honda Civic.

Geraint said of his new role: "I've always respected the guys at Outpost and the work they produce," he said. "I'm a graduate of Bournemouth University and love it here. I've always felt like it was my home so having the chance to work in Bournemouth and for a VFX house is pretty perfect."

Duncan McWIlliam, CEO, Outpost VFX, said: "We are all very happy that Geraint has joined Outpost VFX, his knowledge and expertise in the VFX production will be invaluable as the company continues to expand to accommodate a growing number of exciting film and commercial projects."
