About Us

In “Yellow Brick Road” we meet the artists behind the visual effects, the magicians “behind the curtain” that bring audiences over the rainbow to worlds where monkeys can fly and nothing is impossible. Every episode focuses on a specific topic, like character design, animation, digital zombie slashing or why some horror characters scare us more than others.
