  • ‘MTV’

    I loved this series of ‘Brand Showcase’ films for MTV UK showcasing a number of contemporary artists. It touched on many disciplines within the Flame Premium. Paul and I designed the whole series and it was all composited in Flame. Initially I spent some time in Lustre grading the two ‘looks’. Additional scenery and interest was then composited in the black and white scenes. Extensive beauty work across all the talent followed. Large amounts of rotoscoping and keying was needed to extract talent and place them in the desired sets, complete with carefully selected and designed back plates drawing on inspiration and lyrics from the artists.

    ‘Ferrari World’

    Working closely with the creatives from storyboard stage I managed and completed the Post Production for a number of films for Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. During the early stages of the production I was able to advise and supervise key elements for visual effects. Initially as a Producer I co-ordinated all the offline, telecine and managed all the data and selects for Post Production. I then ran the Post Production across numerous Smoke, Flame AE and Maya suites, completing all the Flame work myself. From concept through to final delivery I was able to lead the Post Production for these modules. These frames are from approval Stages and rehearsals.

  • ‘Ferrari Finale’

    This amazing component of the Ferrari world installation was a massive 25 foot wide projected film of the moment the super car leaves the production arena and exits onto the race track at Maranello. The viewer is transported alongside the car, the scale and sound design consuming the visitor. This was shot on Vistavision for optimum width. There was extensive beauty work, clean up as well as the compositing of the workers and managers in the opening few seconds.

  • ‘Shadows’

    This lovely installation piece was one element of a fantastic visitor experience at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. This film was projected onto large screens using HD projectors whilst the viewer was transported through the exhibit. The glass screens were offset in the space to create depth. Beautiful.

    ‘Body Assembly’

    As part of the series of films for the Ferrari museum this illustrated the assembly process of the car projected on the dome on the roof of the vast museum in Abu Dhabi.
