Moving Target uses Fusion 9 Studio
VFX Investigation: Cracking the "Bosch" Case
Moving Target uses Fusion 9 Studio on the hit Amazon Prime Video streaming series

Visual effects (VFX) house Moving Target has worked on the long-running series since its first season. According to Compositor Jeremy Nelson, doing VFX for a streaming series allows for more creativity and refinement, since there aren't the same time constraints as other episodic work. "I prefer working on streaming shows because you're working on the whole season at once. The schedule is more like working on a movie, which gives you more time to refine your effects. When you're doing one episode per week, you can feel rushed at times. With 'Bosch,' we have time for creative freedom."   [FULL STORY]
