Resin was the sole visual effects vendor for season 1 of Hunters, a 13 episode series for NBC Universal's SyFy channel launched in the US, April 2016. We produced over 800 visual effects shots for the series including the production of a number of digital assets and were responsible for the creative development of several signature effects for the series. A reel of our work will be revealed over time as the series is released. For now we’ve included the trailer.
From executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator Trilogy) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys, Heroes), Hunters is inspired by Whitley Strieber’s best-selling novel, Alien Hunter, in which the disappearance of a decorated FBI agent's wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists - shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world. The series stars Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek) as Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past trying to piece together the disappearance of his wife. Britne Oldford (American Horror Story) will play Regan, who is one of the government’s most valuable operatives and may be keeping secrets of her own. Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) portrays McCarthy, an unhinged junkie and Hunter cell leader. Hunters will be tonally dark and offer a unique crossover twist between gritty crime drama and sci-fi thriller.
