#SuperEverything comes to Singapore tonight – it’s a FREE show at the Lasalle Singapore Airlines Theatre + will be live streamed at 1pm GMT on


We were very honoured to be asked to creatively direct the BFI’s first ever fund raising gala event ‘Luminous’. It was a long journey to pull the various elements of creative production together and we were very excited to present the results last night to an exclusive audience in London.

The event showcased the BFI’s extensive archive, focusing on the importance of film restoration and celebrating the UK’s film talent. All this material was crafted into 360 degree projection mapping around the entire ballroom at the 8 Northumberland Avenue venue, using a mixture of visual footage gathered from film shoots at the National Archive in Berkhamsted and 100’s of stills from their special collections.

The centre piece for the event was an epic multi screen audio visual piece called ‘Soliloquy’ that was written and directed by TLS creative director Christopher Thomas Allen. This kaleidoscopic exploration of film celebrates the role that moving image plays in all our lives and asks where we would be without it. The poetic narrative is read by Idris Elba accompanied by an original score by composer Jude Greenaway and live orchestration from the Urban Soul Orchestra.

Here’s another quick phone pic; this time of the snow theme animations with the crane camera rig monitors to the left for the live feeds inset on either side of the main screen. The animations kept moving forward through the landscapes with details such as birds flying across a valley, the full moon appearing, lightening and snow falling. I’d especially like to thank Dave Baum who was Creative Director on this plus the great team of freelancers:  Chris Pearson and BlinkinLABs’ Tom and Satako: your work looked fantastic!


Last night I found myself on the red carpet for the Twilight premier … Although, sadly not on R Pats arm! TLS produced all the landscape animation backgrounds for the metres of LED that surrounded Leicester Square gardens. After last years Wembley Arena Barclays screens project it was great to work with Heart again and The Creative Technology team, Bez and Dave, could not have been a better technology partner. Here is a quick snap that was taken on my phone…

Who Am I?

Last Friday I enjoyed an afternoon of exhibitions in South Kensington including British Design, Thomas Heatherwick Studio and Ballgowns at the V&A, Atmosphere and Who am I? at the Science Museum. Who am I? is a fantastic experience, I have not seen a gallery that quiet with all ages occupied in a long time! The glass cabinets are full of wonderful objects with loads of information and at the same time fun, the interactive element has something for everyone. Here is a picture of an albino peacock … I highly recommend a visit to both these national institutions/treasures.
