Goodbye Kansas work for season 5 of the successful series Outlander included many great VFX sequences, for example, the massive locust swarms of episode 506 and the dramatic Buffalo sequence of episode 509. The season also included plenty of set extensions and DMP work and a flashback sequence for ep 508 where we created a visual look inspired by silent movie footage.
All in all, we delivered 175 VFX shots for season 5.
