Academy Award-winning effects company studioADI has one of the most must-follow accounts on YouTube, as the legendary effects artists frequently upload vintage videos from their vault that take you behind the scenes and into their workshop. The studio has worked on countless movies that we all love, so they’ve got a treasure trove of content to show off.
StudioADI’s latest YouTube project is something entirely new, a web-series titled Playtime that plays out like a tribute to the Child’s Play franchise as well as a love letter to the art of practical effects. Playtime centers on a very Chucky-like killer doll named Billy, the star of an old horror franchise. In the meta series, Billy finds out his franchise is being rebooted.
