While the youth can’t stop binge watching TV shows, Netflix released the most anticipated show of all time. Black Mirror is the new hype in the town. It is basically a science fiction anthology television series created by Charlie Brooker, with Charlie and Annabel Jones serving as the program show runners. It examines modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies.

With the combination satire and anthology, Black Mirror is something that will boggle your mind for sure. A lot of episodes in this series showed some explicitly manipulated scenes. There was this one scene with a giant spider entering the room. That was all done with the CGI effects.

The special effects artists at the Painting Practice, an England-based VFX house, and the London branch of Framestore, this horrific creature makes its appearance halfway through the episode, which takes place in an immersive virtual world designed by a video game company. Not just this but the other scenes are equally mind boggling.

Black mirror has become an epitome in the visual effects industry. All the shackles associated with the visual effects in TV series got destroyed with this show. The trailer for this latest season showed all the important events of past years and its impact.

Critics also agreed that Black Mirror had some kickass work done in the episodes. The show began with a whole dimension on a different level. In addition to that, it needs to be understood that Black Mirror broke all the pre conceived notions that TV shows don’t work enough on visual effects.

A satire like this with production quality like this is sure to create buzz of this extent.
