Dr Who

Flatline

Client: axisVFX / BBC

The Eighth Season of Dr Who starring Peter Capaldi, has served up a feast of frightful enemies, yet none more creepy and terrifying than the 'Boneless' - ​beings from another plane with the ability to absorb humans and transform them into static, two-dimensional entities trapped as paintings and murals.

Audiomotion teamed up with axisVFX and director Douglas Mackinnon to capture the ​glitchy, distorted and ethereal essence of the sinister shapeshifters​ who rise from their 2D ​forms to become 3-dimensional menaces, all through the use of motion capture. Flatline aired on 18th October on BBC1.
