Listen to our fxpodcast discussing Poor Things with Simon about the film’s visual effects at Union VFX , including working with miniatures, LED volumes, and how to fit the neck of a goose onto the body of a goat (or the head of a pig on the body of a chicken!).

Poor Things tells the story of a woman brought back to life by an unorthodox scientist.  She runs off with a lawyer on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. As she is free from the normal societal prejudices of her times, she grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation.
