An Unlikely Band of Misfit Effects

Earlier in the year, a friend of mine recommended I watch the English show Misfits on Hulu. Being a fan of all things superhero related I decided to give it a shot and I loved it. The series came out in the UK in November 2009 and since then there have been 4 series, and have received a numerous number of awards. The show is produced by Clerkenwell Films and has a lot of visual effects in it. After doing some research, I was able to find out that the promo for the show was created by a group called Machine Shop but the majority of in-show effects are done by a second group, known as Shadowjack Visual Effects, which has worked on many different projects including the Harry Potter series. Below is the promo for the first series and the Visual Effects showreel, put on YouTube by one of the show's compositors, Antonio Rodriguez Diaz. Enjoy!
