That included shots from the season premiere, "The (Very) Big Bird Job," which revolved around the heist of Howard Hughes' famous "Spruce Goose" airplane, which is on display at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in Oregon.
"The director wanted it to look like the propellers were moving, but legally you're not allowed to start the plane in the museum," Kalinoski said.
That meant that, among other things, Exodus had to create 3D, moving propellers to replace the actual plane's static ones in the shot.
Exodus also does commercial work. The company has been involved with ads for Netflix, Sony and Microsoft, and earlier this month, Wallace was working on Shoe Carnival holiday ads.
As well as things have been going, they haven't been perfect, of course.
While Kalinoski said they have encountered some difficulties with companies hesitating to work with them because of their location, the biggest problem has come from within West Virginia. Trying to find Internet service was the biggest obstacle to their return.
"It was hard to find a place with Internet," Kalinoski said.
More specifically, it was hard to find a place with the sort of Internet capacity they need to work with the sizable files they do.
"The files are so big," Wallace explained. "They're movie images, so they're lots and lots of frames. And we ship them back and forth to New York and L.A."
"We use terabytes [roughly 1,000 gigabytes] when we're both working," Kalinoski said.
"We almost considered moving the entire company to another state because of the lack of interest in providing Internet service to meet our needs," he added.
Lumos Networks stepped up to help them out, but still, they're paying much more for much less bandwidth than any other place they've lived.
"I wish West Virginia had a tech czar," Kalinoski lamented. "Someone to see what West Virginia needs, how we compete with other states and what can be done to improve."
They're making it work, though, and producing movie magic that's seen (or not seen, as is sometimes the case) across the globe. Not a bad homecoming at all.
