40 cgw e d i t i o n 2 , 2 0 2 0 Transcending Boundaries It used to be that cutting-edge visual effects were the domain of feature films. But now, similar work can be found on the small screen as streaming services (Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, Disney+, and more) and premium channels (HBO, Showtime, Starz, Epix, and others) are growing in popularity and offering extraordinary content boosted by CGI. Indeed, VFX in entertainment appears to have no bounds. Here, we look at the complex digital work playing out on television, computer, and mobile-device screens. This includes the VFX used to create the enchanted world of the faeries in Amazon's Carnival Row and the real-time design and vi- sualization technology that has brought the amazing world of HBO's His Dark Materials to life. With film and television production stalled due to COVID, audiences are rediscovering these series. To this end, CGW decided to backstep, too, and highlight this compelling work. – Karen Moltenbrey
