This week we were engaged by French company CANAL+ to film for them an interview with Australia's legendary director George Miller for their program "Recontres De Cinema". Laurent Weil is the host of the show - and is regarded by many to be Europe's number one film interviewer. It was a pleasure to welcome Laurent and his director David to Sydney, and fantastic to hear George Miller talk about his love of filmmaking, stories from the past and his artistic process.

Here's a quick look at some of the behind the scenes of our rebel "summer of sport" TVC shoot. Filmed over 2 days using the Phantom Flex 4K camera - the spot was filmed at 1000fps.
Lucas kicked off the year editing a promo spot for SBS News and Current Affairs. It's not everyday that one gets to edit with such powerful and emotive images, and as such was truly enjoyable. Set against the children's song "Twinkle, twinkle little star", the spot examines the theme of Terrorism, and how this theme is reported on across the multiple news and current affairs brands of SBS - under the tagline "small world, big thinking". Enjoy!
We've just completed work on our latest TVC campaign for rebel - launching their new range of football boots for 2016. No job is without its challenges - but this job had a few more than most - needing to get players from multiple football codes in multiple states to all appear together at once. The solution was to shoot across multiple days in both Melbourne and Sydney - filming almost entirely on green screen in studio. We teamed up with the Goodman Brothers to undertake the arduous task of VFX, over 60 shots in total. With every background needed to be created as matte paintings and tracked in, as well as the creation of ominous skies and glowing meteors and beams. As well as filming the talent and boots, numerous days were spent taking still shots to be stitched together and create the backgrounds for every shot. The TVC launches this week on TV, online and in cinema.

So, that happened... a few weeks ago, whilst doing a routine update of our website I managed to accidentally erase it completely. I guess deep down I wanted a new site, a cleaner, simpler site. The thing is, I didn't really have the time to devote to building a new one from scratch. But then I decided to give squarespace.com a go - and what do you know, this site came together extremely quickly. So enjoy - and if you have any comments on how we can improve the site - feel free to let me know. However I won't promise I'll have time to do much about it.
