The Fades was a British supernatural drama television series broadcast on BBC Three and BBC HD. The first of six episodes aired on 21 September 2011.
The programme centres on an English teenager named Paul who is haunted by apocalyptic dreams that nobody can explain and is able to see spirits of the dead, known as the Fades, all round him. The Fades cannot be seen, smelt, heard or touched by other humans – they are what is left of humans who have died but not been accepted into Heaven.
That’s shortly is what this TV Drama was about and it gave me the chance to work on my first job on VFX industry, at Lexhag/The Look, as a Roto / Prep Artist. I expected to be doing mainly/only roto but there was so much compositing to do and finally I ended up finishing some shots. It really encouraged me and pull my self-esteem up to be more comfortable on Nuke and learn some new techniques involved on tracking, colour correction and compositing.
