A film version of one of the beloved books of English literature – Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice – isn’t the most obvious of projects to land at the door of a top visual-effects house. Yet this period drama set in Georgian England features more than 400 visual-effects shots, courtesy of UK post house Double Negative.

Fresh from working on films such as Batman Begins, Kingdom of Heaven, and Harry Potter, Double Negative was asked by Pride & Prejudice’s director Joe Wright, to help recreate an England from the early 19th Century in a way that was would be invisible to the audience. This included digital set extensions, replacements skies, and the removal of all modern-day elements that were unavoidable during filming.

The original brief was to use CG imagery to enhance the pivotal sequences in the film, explains John Moffatt, Double Negative’s visual-effects supervisor.
