  2. When film director and writer Joseph Chu puts out an open casting call for a new film based on his family, he never expects his own father to audition for the lead role of the father. Caught somewhere between his real memories of his father and the fictional character he’s created, Joseph is forced to confront his own fears, hypocrisies, and realizations.

  4. A complicated labour intensive process on varying degree’s of archive quality, where by the past performers were isolated both visually and vocally from the original footage ready for the live audience shoot. This involved many hours of rotoscoping, compositing and grading by our specialised team of roto artists and compositors. Once this was completed the director, Steve Smith, had the task of shooting the live action in such a way that it could be superimposed over the treated archive footage in a realistic manner. The musical backing tracks were re-recorded and re-mixed allowing the feature solo’s from both artists as well as sections of the song where they sing together. The final piece was a benchmark in musical collaborations both visually & vocally and led the way for the Elvis Presley special feature we worked on for American Idol which you can view on our site also.
