BlueBolt was the sole VFX provider on this eight-part Saxons vs Danes drama.
A large team of artists conquered over 395 VFX shots across 8 episodes in 9 months. VFX Work was extensive, ranging from creating Saxon Fortresses and villages, flotillas of Viking Ships and environments to set the scene for the earthy performances. BlueBolt created a digital crowd tailored to the dramatic requirements of the Last Kingdom’s historical battles, featuring the shield wall tactic. Battle scenes were brought to life using a combination of carefully planned and supervised live action elements combined with digital armies, giving scale, drama and a gruesome realisation of the story.
