Montreal’s Modus FX provided 47 visual effects shots for Cary Joji Fukunaga’s retelling of Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel Jane Eyre. Set in the mid-19th century English countryside, the effects work for this visually rich adaptation had to be invisible and blend seamlessly. Along with removing the trappings of modern life from a number of shots, such as overhead wires or telephone poles, the team at Modus changed the season in which several sequences are set. The most complex part of the project called for a digitally altered environment to create the burned-out ruins of Thornfield Castle.
