This is the complete 30' Episode 1 of SPIRIT WARRIORS, that I directed and executive produced for CBBC and BBCHD. The series was a 10 children's part kung fu fantasy adventure and a wealth of different kinds of visual effects - 2d, 3d, cg, digital matte painting, etc. - were necessary to bring this very ambitious though modestly budgeted series to life. Success was only achieved by spending such a relatively long period (9 months) in R&D before the series even started shooting. By personally drawing over 1600 pre-viz storyboards and concept sketches for the visual effects team, (whilst the scripts were still being written), I could guarantee that our vfx approach would fulfill all our editorial requirements and still be accomplished within our tight budget.
FOUR STARS. "This first episode sets the scene in spectacular fashion, and if its stunning effects are an indicator of things to come, then it should prove an unmissable children's adventure" - Daily Mail
"A clever new fantasy. Recommended" - The Observer Review
"Must record. Impressive new drama series aimed at the entire family. Extraordinary world of fantasy and myth" - Mail on Sunday
"It'll spirit you away" - Sunday Times
