Presenting: A Case Study of Netflix Feature Film ‘Stowaway’ And World-Leading Virtual Art Studio Happy Mushroom

Imagine planning and shooting a film where there is no up, down, right, or left. Add a massive rotating spaceship, the Sun, Earth, Moon, and Mars – and you have cinematographer Jannicke Mikkelsen’s scenery working on Netflix’s recent release ‘Stowaway’.

Some of ‘Stowaway’s most dramatic scenes center around a crucial spacewalk, where the characters make their way from a spaceship’s crew module, across the solar array, to a rocket booster – involving weightlessness, wirework, and requiring plenty of VFX.
