VFX work behind Amazon’s neo-futurist semi-anthology TALES FROM THE LOOP. Visual effects are of course key to any sci-fi fable, but maintaining a balance with the naturalism of this sci-fi fable gave the VFX team more than enough to manage. To take point, supervisor Andrea Knoll enlisted the aid of Rodeo FX (Stranger Things 3, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) to take point as lead vendor.

Led by Robert Bock, the team at Rodeo FX gets the credit for breathing life into the more fantastical elements of Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag’s original vision. Four robots (three moving, one static), Paul Schneider’s mechanical arm, and countless environmental elements went into the work, comprising a world that feels both painterly, humanistic and lived-in yet sharp, tech-forward and brand new. In all, Rodeo FX contributed over 700 shots to the series, a record for the firm.
