Here's A Great Look At The Lost In Space VFX Used To Put Will Robinson In Serious Danger

Video: If you haven't had a chance to check out Netflix's reboot of the campy '60s sci-fi classic Lost in Space, you might want to avoid this spoiler-packed look at some of the new series' visual effects. But this behind-the-scenes is a great example of how far VFX has come - and how a low-budget sci-fi show doesn't necessarily have to look like a cheesy B-movie.

That's not to say Netflix hasn't poured millions of dollars into its version of Lost in Space, but it's doubtful the company has spent as much money on post-production as, say, Disney has for its Star Wars sequels. However, Image Engine proves you can still do a lot with a TV-sized budget, including the use of extensive digital set extensions to help turn Earth-based shooting locales into convincing alien worlds, and making a robot sidekick that doesn't look like someone glued old radio parts to a garbage bin.
