    Credits: Title: Tightly Wound Client: Film 4 Producer: Shizuka Hata Director: Simon Cooke VFX Supervisor/Director: Dan Coster 3D: Paul Evans, Simon Hegarty, Aaron Hegarty Compositor: Tony Lee Loco were thrilled to co-create with the Film 4 team, their latest promo for the Tightly Wound season of thrillers. The teaser features a steel cable twisting and pulled to breaking point, inter-cut with such film clips as The Godfather, Double Jeopardy, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and LA Confidential. The sound design helps ratchet up the tension as the cable begins to snap and the movie scenes grow ever more intense. With a tight turnaround time and a desire to allow flexibility over the camera angles and look of the cables snapping, the team decided to take a CGI approach rather than a live action, high-speed camera shoot. Loco’s 3D team researched industrial and cinematic representations of high-tension cables pulling and snapping in order to build and rig the photorealistic model of a 49-strand steel cable. They were then able to animate the breaks within the steel wire rope to maximise the drama of the CGI scenes. Loco’s Creative Director/ VFX Supervisor, Dan Coster worked closely with Film4 Director, Simone Cooke to determine the look and feel of the animation and select camera positions and movements that would focus on the stress points as well as travel along with the play of light across the wire’s surface. Loco’s Tony Lee enhanced the piece in the final composite by adding environmental atmos, dust particles, and additional camera shakes.

        IF VIDEO TAKES A WHILE TO LOAD, TURN THE HD OPTION OFF (top right of video screen) Promo for Nothing at Best, the first single taken from Someone Here is Missing, on Kscope. Directed by Negar Bagheri and Arnfinn Moseng. Album artwork by Storm Thorgerson (Pink Floyd, MUSE, Biffy Clyro). Someone Here is Missing is: “A record of dark edges, full of love and regret, my life in the last eighteen months pretty much,” according to singer/songwriter Bruce Soord. It also happens to be their best yet. With 2008’s acclaimed Tightly Unwound album – which launched the renowned Kscope label – the band suddenly found themselves celebrated at both home and abroad. “Everything was suddenly in place for us to move on to the next level as a band,” says Soord, “We just had to make a great record, no pressure then…” As prolific a songwriter as Soord might be – The Pineapple Thief have a double CD called 3000 Days of extraordinary songs culled from their back catalogue – even he decided to bring new colours to his pallet when creating Someone Here is Missing, adding keyboards and samples of sound to bring the bubbling, almost threatening undercurrent of the band’s songs to life.
