Artemple Hollywood masterfully crafts invisible VFX for Netflix’s ‘MINDHUNTER’

Latest News, Studio, VFX
Netflix has made it a habit to deliver binge worthy content, one after the other. The most recent show which I binged on was the crime-drama-thriller ‘MINDHUNTER’. The show captures the escapades of two FBI agents, back in the late 1970s, who expand criminal science by delving into the psychology of murder and getting uneasily close to all-too-real monsters. The series premiered on 13th October 2017 with 10 episodes making up Season 1. The compelling 10-episode series unfolds like a theatrical feature, rather than a collection of distinct episodes, making each episode’s end credits leaving you with ‘something is amiss’ kind of feeling rather than a suggestion to stop watching and save it for next time. The story is based on the non-fiction book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Seri
