In “The King of Warsaw” we made over 500 VFX shots including digital creation of the city, airport, hyperrealistic architecture and interior design, cut-off hand, whale, and the starry night sky. All this in the very demanding HDR workflow according to the high post-production standard for Canal+.

“One of the most anticipated Polish series of recent times, based on the award-winning novel by Szczepan Twardoch, is set in the opulent halls and dusty courts of pre-war Warsaw. (…) The historical crime drama with many twists and turns and a great production design recalls the forgotten multicultural history of Warsaw, depicting the struggles with nationalists and the Polish antisemitism.” – serialkillers.tv
