Due to hit cinemas this year, Winter of the Dead (METELESTA) is the first big-production zombie feature to come out of Russia. Directed by Nikolai Pigarev and produced by Red Spy, it follows a small group caught in a mid-summer snowstorm that causes the dead to rise and terrorise the city!

In addition to providing mixing facilities and sound design for the film, we were also commissioned to conceive and produce the 60 second opening titles in both English and Russian, taking the form of an animated sequence which plays with the themes of snow, trees, veins and viruses all presented in a filthy and aggressive deconstructive style.

In line with our sound design duties, we were also tasked with composing and producing the opening track that accompanies the title, creating a strong link between picture and sound, resulting in a tightly syncopated sequence.

Check out the (English) opening title here!

We were brought on by AFL Media to create the huge CG banner that forms the centrepiece of the Collingwood Football Clubs membership campaign, in addition to grading the final spots.

With the team emerging on the the field, the spot features a massive CG banner being raised which was animated and tracked into live action footage shot on the ALEXA.

The empty seats of the MCG were replaced with thousands of screaming fans, the banner integrated with the live action footage, then rain and optical effects added to complete the look.

LOVE THE FALL (Music Video)

We just finished post production on the new Michael Paynter/Veronicas clip 'Love the Fall' for Sony.

Shot in LA on the RED, the clip follows Michael's pursuit of the girls through a storybook-style forest. Aside from taking on the 2k edit and grading, we also produced several high-end VFX including shots of the 'living dress'. The brief called for a high-end look but with a dirty finish, requiring advanced skin smoothing, grading and film treatments to create the final look.
