Burbank-based visual effects studio FuseFX has released a new video highlighting some of the tremendous visual effects their team of artists created for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

FuseFx is the lead visual effects provider for the Marvel television series, which earned an Emmy-nomination this year for Outstanding Visual Effects. A remarkable achievement when you consider the faster turnaround time required for television as opposed to the many months feature films get to polish their effects. For Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., FuseFx has 10 or 12 produces the visual effects for each episode. In that short window they may have to create character-driving effects animation, photo-realistic vehicles, CG set extensions, pyrotechnics and atmospheric effects, among others.

"FuseFX is by far the best visual effects company working in television," said Mark Kolpack, VFX Supervisor on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "They have the best pipeline and the best talent pool. Their organization and attention to detail is outstanding."

Check it out in the video below.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." returns for an action-packed third season, with Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Agent Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) leading the charge as S.H.I.E.L.D. searches the world for more powered people in the aftermath of their epic battle with Jiaying and her army of Inhumans. However, Coulson and the team soon find out that they are not the only group looking for these new Inhumans. Many months after their war with a rogue group of Inhumans, the team is still reeling. Coulson is again trying to put the pieces of his once revered organization back together while also dealing with the loss of his hand. His confidante and second in command, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), has yet to return from an impromptu vacation with ex-husband Andrew (Blair Underwood); deadly superspy Agent Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) is recovering from her traumatic torture at the hands of Grant Ward (Brett Dalton); Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) is obsessed with discovering the truth behind the mysterious disappearance of Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge); and all are on high-alert for the next move from Ward and Hydra.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Three premieres September 29 at 9:00 on ABC.
