Milk was the principal VFX vendor for Amazon and the BBC’s six-part TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s acclaimed apocalyptic comedy Good Omens. The Milk team created 650 shots within a five month post turnaround – all overseen by award-winning VFX supervisor and Milk co-founder Jean-Claude Deguara – and nominated for a 2020 BAFTA Television Craft Award.

Equal parts humour, horror, fantasy and drama, Good Omens was adapted by Neil Gaiman who also served as Showrunner and directed by Douglas Mackinnon.

The End of the World is coming, which means a fussy Angel and a loose-living Demon who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon. But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.

David Tennant plays the demon Crowley, while Michael Sheen is the angel Aziraphale who join forces to prevent Armageddon. Miranda Richardson, Michael McKean and comedian Jack Whitehall also have roles in the series.

Good Omens was shot in London, Oxfordshire and locations in South Africa.

The series premiered on Amazon Prime in May 2019 and on BBC2 in January 2020.
