Fabricating The Flash

In The Flash, the television series currently airing on The CW and based on the famous DC Comics character, assistant police forensic investigator Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) suffers a major electrical and chemical event that causes him – and other ‘metahumans’ – to possess incredible superpowers. For Allen this is the ability to move at superhuman speeds, an effect achieved in the show largely with the help of Encore Hollywood. We find out from visual effects supervisor Armen Kevorkian how they helped bring the Flash to life.
