A Spy Among Friends - Bas Relief Portrait Panel ITV Spy Ltd

Based on the New York Times best-selling book by Ben Macintyre, A Spy Among Friends follows the defection of notorious British intelligence officer and KGB double agent, Kim Philby, through the lens of his complex relationship with MI6. It was produced in collaboration with Sony Pictures Television, ITV Studios and Veritas Entertainment Group and stars Guy Pearce as Philby.

We were asked to make an 1800mm diameter bas relief portrait panel, depicting the Bolshevik revolutionary, Felix Dzerzhinsky, in a Soviet era style. A small version of the circular panel was initially sculpted in clay before being scanned to Freeform and then cut to size in model board on our 3-axis CNC router. After some hand finishing the panel was sealed and painted with a bronze paint finish to create a stunning scenic prop.

A Spy Among Friends was released on 1st November 2022 and is be available on ITVX in the UK and Spectrum Originals in the US.
