Oktoberfest: Beer & Blood

TV Series - Season 1 (2020)


1900: A rich newcomer with a shady past arrives in Munich determined to crash the local Oktoberfest with his own brewery. But when his daughter falls in love with the heir to a rival brewery, a violent chain of events is unleashed that will threaten both families' futures.

We were responsible for the visual effects for Oktoberfest: Beer and Blood. We had the pleasure to create Munich and the "Wiesn" at the turn of the twentieth century. Hundreds of CG tents were build and combined with live action sets from Prague to bring a loud, dirty, rough, exciting and atmospheric Oktoberfest to life.
Thousands of digital extras stroll past CG funfair stalls, ride the carousels or drink virtual beer in CG tents. What a great task to do!
You can watch Hannu Salonen’s great show on Netflix.
