There’s a lot of change going on in Doctor Who this year. A new Doctor is coming and that means a whole new world of adventures and exploits.
But just for a second, forget all that because there’s also a massive change coming behind the scenes that you may not have thought about.
Doctor Who is to get a new visual FX crew this year, the good people at the Mill are stepping down and a new bunch is stepping up to take their place.
Although they’re a new company, there’s some familiar faces that will realise Doctor Who’s new visuals.
Milk, the company that will get you believing that a TARDIS can fly, will consist of Nick Drew, Managing Director and Executive Producer, Visual Effects Supervisors Jean-Claude Deguara and Nico Hernandez, also joint Heads of 3D , Sara Bennett, Head of 2D and Murray Barber. They will work alongside Executive Producer and CEO of the company, someone familiar to fans through Doctor Who Confidential, Will Cohen.
Cohen gave some confident words:
Milk aims to be the most sought after visual effects team in what we believe is blossoming into a thriving industry for high-end TV visual effects. Our new venture is timed to enable us to capitalise on the new tax breaks in the UK as we expect to see an influx of TV work, as well as continued feature film work, coming to London over the next few months and beyond.
Not only will Milk be working on the effects for Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary, they will also be working on Moffat’s third series of Sherlock as well so there’s plenty to look forward to from them.
You can see examples of their work at http://www.milk-vfx.com/ and it looks amazing.
