Here's further proof that maybe Orphan Black should've been included in this year's Emmy nominations: the special effects. BBC America just released this video looking at how they make multiple clone scenes come together, plus a look at all the little visuals you didn't realize were special effects while watching the show. Think set backgrounds, that gross pencil scene, and even snow.

And remember that awesome dance party that ended season two? Here's a little extra look into how the show put four clones and a Felix, for good measure, in that one scene.
