Logline: When Mo Folchart reads a story, the characters leap off the page. Literally. And that's a problem. Mo, aided by his daughter Meggie, must somehow use his special powers to send the interlopers back to their world and save ours
The company Double Negative was approached to create the menacing animated character, The Shadow, along with other creatures and visual effects for the film. Working closely with the production's VFX Supervisor, Angus Bickerton, Double Negative's team were led by VFX Supervisors Paul Riddle and Ryan Cook, and VFX Producer Fay McConkey.
The finale of the film takes place within a ruined amphitheatre nestled in the Italian mountains; this is the lair of Capricorn, one of the villains Mo has accidentally "read" into the real world. The visual effects work included the digital augmentation of the bluescreen set, the billowing, pyroclastic monster, The Shadow, the surreal winged monkeys with their raven black feathers and Carpricorn's final transition.
