American Horror Story: Freak Show VFX Breakdown

FuseFX has released a new visual effects breakdown video for American Horror Story: Freak Show.

The Burbank-based visual effects studio earned an Emmy-nomination for Outstanding Special Visual Effects in a Supporting Role for their work on American Horror Story: Freak Show.

The average 1-hour episode from the Freak Show anthology included more than 100 visual effects shots many of which were complicated character effects. There was Edward Mordrake, a 19th century English noble, who sports a second face on the back of his head, and Twisty, a macabre clown who lost his lower jaw to a shotgun blast. Most ambitious are Bette and Dot Tattler, conjoined twins, identical in every respect except for their divergent personalities. (Both characters are played by actress Sarah Paulson.) - FuseFX

American Horror Story: Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.


American Horror Story: Hotel will premiere October 7 on FX.
