Johnny Hardstaff was approached by Radiohead to direct a longer format 'special commission' for the track 'Like Spinning Plates'. Johnny designed all components, environments, graphics and live action scenes. Initially only a few CG shots of the spinning centrifuge were required. However early tests based on Johnny's artwork were so successful that ultimately most shots in the 6 minute film contained CG. Paul McGeoch led a small team who worked tirelessly for 7 weeks on the expanded shot list. Final compositing was expertly handled by Barnsley at the Mill London.
