FX Technology
Sanctuary's world of Abnormals and spectacular gadgetry is unlike anything seen before, and it takes some pretty fancy effects footwork to bring it to life. Read on to learn about the ways in which the people behind the show make the adventures of Doctor Helen Magnus a feast for your eyes.
  • Going Green

    Green-screen video production marries camera hardware with computer software. Virtually everything you see in many Sanctuary scenes - besides the actors - is "projected" onto green screens on set by computers during post-production.
  • RED camera

  • CGI

    CGI gives Sanctuary its atmosphere and scares. Amanda and her co-stars are often reacting to points in space that later are populated with monsters, castles and animals.
