Special Effects
 

The current CGI company is Animal Logic.  They came on board for Farscape's second season, replacing the season one FX company (Garner MacLennan Design - they still have a Farscape page up at http://www2.gmd.com.au/television/default.htm).  I have to say that any reservations I had about the switch (change always makes me nervous *grin*) were blown out of the water after seeing "Liars, Guns and Money Part 1 - A Not So Simple Plan".  This single ep contained more "eye-candy" then most full length feature films!  Well, at least it felt that way to me - in MHO, Animal Logic ROCKS!

Their website is gorgeous as well -

Music
 
 

The music in the second season is being done by Guy Gross.  He has a website up at -

http://www.ygross.com.au/ggm/
 

In the first season, the music was done by SubVision.  They don't appear to have a webpage.
 

For some discussion over the reason for the switch, and how each company approached doing the scoring for the show, check out the following article -

"FARSCAPE: Music for the Wide-Open Universe - SubVision and Guy Gross discuss their different approaches to the hit show."  by Randall D. Larson (12/2/00).
