We are happy to share news about the success of our colleagues, but it is a double pleasure these successes are so ambitious!

That fatal power Unit 4 – the one featured in the Chernobyl series by HBO (highly recommended, if you have not seen it yet) was created by the team of the Postmodern Digital studio!

To create a reliable virtual model of the building and the environment, archival data were used, as well as photo and video materials. The view of the station after the accident was recreated with close attention to all the details in order to show the viewer all the damages from the explosion exactly as they were in reality.

Initially, the power unit asset was designed for the Inseparable mini-series (2013). This picture hit the short list of the main award in the visual effects industry - VES Awards in 2 categories at once: Outstanding Visual Effects in a Broadcast Program and Outstanding Created Environment in a Commercial or Broadcast Program. In the same nominations, Postmodern competed with Game of Thrones, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Hell On Wheels and others.

The quality of the work on the asset has attracted HBO’s attention, and so the work of Postmodern studio is going forth impressing the audience in the new project.
