about

Working on Sky’s new medical drama, Critical, was an incredibly fun experience. Practical effects were used on set wherever possible, and in post-production my job was to supplement those practical effects by using matte painting techniques to make certain scenes look realistically gorier.

Along with adding extra gore, I was tasked with painting out nurses from certain background scenes, lighting up the exterior of an empty building to mimic the look of a busy hospital, and making a friendly dog appear to be viciously biting into a man’s arm.
