This teaser showcases a series of high class films I created and produced for Saudi Aramco (and with the cooperation of Sinopec Industries Inc.). The series' purpose was to narrate the flow of energy production, from the first land surveys to the final distribution to clients.
We filmed in the remote desert of the RUB AL KHALI, an area of many thousand square kilometers between Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Significantly, we were the first film team there since the mid 1960s when Aramco built its outpost in the region.

Very special thanks to GUOLAI WANG of Sinopec and the staff of the remote survey camp "Ramlah 62". Without your fabulous Chinese inventiveness this series literally would have been impossible.
