A Series of Unfortunate Events: Don't Look Away From This Incredible FX Reel

Some elements of Netflix's candy-colored adaptation of "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" were quite obviously computer-generated, like the exotic inhabitants of Uncle Monty's reptile room, or the breathtaking Peruvian waterfall. However, you may not fully appreciate the extent of the CG effects until you watch this video.

Produced by Zoic Studios, the reel compiles some of the company's best work on the series, which includes not only cityscapes and enormous yet friendly snakes, but also the youngest Baudelaire orphan. Well, at least parts of her.

Yes, in many scenes, the outspoken (if not always intelligible) Sunny is at least partly CG -- and not only when she's dealing cards to the Hook-Handed Man or being held haphazardly overhead by Count Olaf: The show employed visual effects for the lower part of her face so the baby could "talk."

Founded in 2002, the California-based Zoic Studios has a long list of television and film credits, including "The Flash," "Battlestar Galactica," "Firefly," "Constantine," "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "The Grey."

Starring Neil Patrick Harris and Patrick Warburton, "A Series of Unfortunate Events" tells the story of the orphaned Baudelaire children, and their diabolical distant relative Count Olaf, who will stop at nothing to get his hands on their fortune. The first season of the show covered the first four novels in the bestselling series. Netflix announced a second season earlier this month.
