The Night Manager

The Night Manager is a contemporary John le Carré story of arms dealing and double crossing set against the backdrop of the Arab spring, starring Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman. It aired in 2016 on BBC One and on AMC in the United States.

BlueBolt produced just under 100 VFX shots for the production – setting the scene for key dramatic scenes such as the demonstration of the armaments, a frighteningly violent ‘fireworks’ display. This involved a combination of CG fighter jets and drones and a carefully orchestrated sequence combining practical and CG FX.
