The second season of “The Mysterious Benedict Society” has just wrapped on Disney+, and this week, I spoke with Bryant Reif, who is the FuseFX CG Supervisor on the second season.
“The Mysterious Benedict Society” is about a group of gifted orphans who go on a secret mission for an eccentric, mysterious benefactor. The series stars Mystic Inscho, Seth Carr, Emmy DeOliveira, and Marta Kessler.
As the show takes place in a fictional European town in the 1950s and 60s, Bryant and his team needed to create visual effects that accurately resembled the style and feel of the era. To create this style, Bryant and his team did plentiful research to ensure even the smallest of details depicted the period of the story. This was especially difficult in their creation of The Shortcut, an ocean liner that the children journey through on their mission.
The Shortcut was completely computer generated, designed after the ship The Queen Mary, which is an actual 1930s ocean liner found in Long Beach. Bryant and his team used images and went to see the ship in-person to get all the intricate details of The Queen Mary incorporated into The Shortcut. From the ocean waves to the small people in the shot, every shot of The Shortcut was digitally created.
Bryant shared some details about how the team at FuseFX digitally created The Shortcut as well as other VFX elements in “The Mysterious Benedict Society”.#disneyplus
