BEST ADVERTISING OR PROMOTIONAL FILM, Annecy Festival 2010!!!
Pete Candeland has created an inspirational cinematic intro for the long awaited The Beatles: Rockband video game.
I was part of the compositor's team. I was responsible for the shot where the Beatles clothes, on the escalator are transforming and the folowing one with the crazy sun and planets fun fair.

This is a personal project that would not have been possible without the support of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Thanks to the entire team for their generous access during training exercises and patrols this Summer. Since the Service began in 1973, it has carried out more than 21,000 missions ranging from urgent patient transfers to dangerous search and rescue missions.
This film is 100% 'real', but there are some new techniques for me here, such as using time lapse to create the illusion of forward movement for the helicopter ocean scenes. These flight sequences would not be possible without the skill and patience of Chief Pilot Peter Yates. Thanks also to Trevor Cracknell (for getting wet!) and Family.
In 2008 alone, the total worldwide expenditure on armaments and was $1.46 trillion. Whilst national defence is of genuine importance, the intensive stockpiling and trade of arms is not, to say nothing of hazing or the military use of children. Offsetting the worst effects of Climate Change cannot be done without considerable sums of capital and an immense human undertaking; both of which conflict and military predominance taps. And when war is profitable, you are guaranteed to see more of it. Changing the world truly is in the hands of the profiteers. Stop. Invest in something precious instead.
