Tyrant, FX’s new drama produced by Fox 21, tells the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the inner workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation, a fictional country Encore VFX helped realize through exotic set extensions, extravagant computer-generated palaces and city skylines, subtle environmental work and crowd duplication.
