Our Kind of Traitor: Shot Visualisation

Another little insight into my workflow and how I approached the vfx for 'Our Kind of Traitor' - Working directly with the directors and supervisor is always the most rewarding aspect. The brief was to create a beautiful yet haunting moment in the films climax...

Money Into Light

Often when reading about something you are often gifted information on another thing entirely. From reading this,



To this, bought for a penny, the book 'Money Into Light The Emerald Forest: A Diary' - by John Boorman.

Full of insight and the idiosyncrasies of a great director in full film making stride...

Magpie

It's awards season and I'm currently working my way through the nominees that are available to watch with on demand streaming websites. The survivalist which was nominated for 'Outstanding Debut' at BAFTA is a film about living after theoretical collapse of civilisation.

After the standard post film trivia digging I came across the directors vimeo page in which there is a short film that is essentially a prequel to the feature called 'Magpie'
