Framestore delivered a wide range of VFX work on the latest series of Peter Morgan’s streaming mega-hit The Crown, including a number of digital environments and crowd work as well as a photoreal CG stag that the production team at times didn’t believe was digital.
The fourth season of The Crown, which follows the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II, was released by Netflix on 15 November 2020.
Olivia Colman stars as Elizabeth, with main cast members Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter, Josh O’Connor, Marion Bailey, Erin Doherty and Emerald Fennell all reprising their roles from the third season. Gillian Anderson, Emma Corrin and Stephen Boxer are added to the main cast. Additionally, Charles Dance returns in the season’s first episode and Claire Foy reprises her role as Elizabeth in a cameo flashback scene.
