Brief To complete 150 visual effects shots on the remake of the 1960s show.

How it was done To recreate the Rover - a floating white ball that is central to the story - a CG 3D model was built in Maya.

This was then referenced and rendered with multi-pass lighting categories. To make Rover expand, shadow work and surface interaction elements were created in 3D and composited with live-action dust elements.

Watch it From 17 April on ITV1
