Death In Paradise.
We’re back on the beautiful, fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie for series 8 of Death In Paradise, where a tranquil backdrop is disturbed by a host of troubling murders. Luckily DI Jack Mooney, played by Ardal O'Hanlon, and his team are on hand to solve them.
Hurricanes are all too familiar on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, where Death In Paradise is filmed - which is where dupe vfx come in! Sky replacements were needed where production had to contend with looming storms on set, some of which you can see below. Our 3D team also had fun working creating a CG island set extension (and dreaming of summer holidays at the same time!)
