Finish Complete Post On New ITV2 Series 'No Heroics'

Finish have recently finished work on a Tiger Aspect production 'No Heroics' for ITV2, the channel's first sitcom.
Directed by Ben Gregor using a single camera, 'No Heroics' follows the very real lives of four off-duty superheroes in London, their struggles in love and their bigger struggles with fame - or lack of it.
Based in a superheroes-only Soho pub, the sitcom focuses on their relationships, their sex lives and their constant desperation for success and fame.
The characters each have a super power, be it not a very good one. The Hotness has the power to heat up like a giant car cigarette lighter, Electroclash can control machines with her voice and Timebomb can see up to sixty seconds into the future. She-Force is the third strongest woman in the world. The superheroes must contend with their nemesis, Excelsor, the most powerful superhero of this generation and the most successful man in tights!
Using Smoke and Flame, over 100 effects shots were created by Finish Flame artists Byron Wooffindin, Jason Watts and Steve Murgatroyd ranging from green screen comps to explosions using both practical elements and CGI.
Ben Gregor, who is signed to Knucklehead for commercials representation, added: "I wanted top notch effects in the show, much better than the usual standard of broadcast TV. Finish were my first choice and nothing was too much trouble for Byron and the team."
