AMC will release the second season of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon in 2024. This season has been subtitled The Book of Carol, as Melissa McBride will return to the universe as Carol Peletier. Recently, the VFX supervisor for the series posted that the VFX team was awarded a Digital Creation GENIE Award in the category of Best Visual Effects – Series.
Joa M'Changama, who is the VFX supervisor of season 1 of The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon along with Sébastien Voisin & Justine Paynat-Sautivet (VFX Producers) / Excuse My French / MPC – Mathematic – BUF – Mac Guff – LIGHT were honored with this award.
M'Changama shared the exciting news on social media with the caption, "I can't find the words to say how proud I am to receive this award."
In an interview with VFX Voice, M'Changama details how events unfolded to bring something on the scale of a Walking Dead series to France. M'Changama and the team met with showrunner David Zabel, director Dan Percival, and executive producer Greg Nicotero to discuss filming Daryl Dixon in France, something quite different from anything TWDU has done in the past.
If you have watched the series, you know that this series was handled by a crack team of creatives, giving such a beautiful look at the apocalypse. While the country is overrun by the dead and destruction is seen everywhere, somehow, it still retains some of the romantic feel associated with France.
Be sure to check out the interview on VFX Voice, as AMC provided some stunning images of the series that showcase all of the work that went into creating an end-of-the-world-looking France.
Congrats to Jao M’Changama (VFX Supervisor), Sébastien Voisin & Justine Paynat-Sautivet, (VFX Producers) / Excuse My French / MPC – Mathematic – BUF – Mac Guff – LIGHT and everyone involved in this outstanding series.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon - The Book of Carol will return to AMC and AMC+ sometime in 2024.
