Jack Irish: bringing the dead to life

7 January 2013 8:24 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Jack Irish, adapted from Peter Temple's critically-acclaimed detective novels, stars Guy Pearce in the lead role as a former criminal lawyer, turned private investigator and debt collector.

Directed by Jeffrey Walker, the two TV movies, Bad Debt and Black Tide, follow the life of Irish after his wife Isabel has been murdered by an ex-client, which leads him on a near-suicidal drinking binge.

Jason Baird's make-up effects company, Jmb FX Studio, was invited to design concepts for a number of dead bodies in the two telemovies at an early stage in the production cycle. Walker wanted the corpses to be as realistic as possible, which is why they turned to Baird's team following their success on productions like The Pacific, where the company.s work creating hundreds of mutilated dead bodies won it an Emmy.

Over the years, the effects experts have studied a number of real corpses »
