Artem Case Studies

Solis Strathie Film

We explained that we wanted to have as many practical elements on screen rather than 'fix it in post' CGI. Our budget was incredibly low and we worried that a huge SFX house like ARTEM wouldn't be the right fit for our project, but ARTEM are incredibly supportive of indie low budget filmmakers and managed to provide us with everything we needed to accommodate for our budget and get the results that we wanted on screen. Not only did we have atmospheric effects for SOLIS, we also had spark squibs and a custom made flying rig to simulate that our leading man was actually floating in space! 

Charlette Kilby, Producer - Strathie Film


Solis was the first prodcution for Strathie Film and is a captivating Sci fi movie starring Steven Ogg (Walking Dead). A space capsule drifts towards the Sun with pilot on board, and oxygen is rapidly depleting.

Our technicians spent six weeks in studio creating the illusion of weightlessness by using a bespoke flying system that enabled Steven Ogg's character to move as if he really was in space.

We also provided Co2 effects for the manouvering nozzles on the spacecraft and realistic spark effects as it all begins to go wrong.
