Good VFX is about storytelling; it's about revealing worlds, moments and emotions that don't exist, can't exist or have existed in emotional, detailed ways. One of the best studios capable of launching us into secret worlds and moments in history is the UK's Lux Aeterna.

The ambitious team has a track record of bringing history to life, whether that's the granular moments in the Secrets of the Neanderthals or taking us back to the dawn of time and the birth of the universe, this studio draws out the story in the sequences they've been tasked with crafting.
