HOW WE WORK
In using new technologies, we will always focus on using the right tools for the job. This means using the tools that allow us to communicate the narrative most effectively. This has meant working with teams of hundreds on some studio features, or distilling this down to one or two key people when capturing penguin behaviour in one of the remotest locations on earth.
Working with new technologies means that we are continually developing new ways of telling stories. Often, clients will come to us the first time that they are working in a new medium, nervous of its restrictions. However, we will use these constraints to create the opportunities for developing original, powerful and unique experiences.
We are as comfortable working as a specialist unit, collaborating with a larger team as we are handling a full production from concept through to delivery. Reviews, grading and delivery can be carried out in our screening room and DI suite or we can work together with other post houses and VFX vendors.
Through his highly acclaimed work on awarding winning feature films, natural history documentaries and commercials, Chris established himself as one of the world's leading voices in 3D. Following this ground breaking work on 'Gravity', Chris has continued to innovate how 3D is utilised creatively on some of the industry's highest profile releases.
Chris has developed his 3D skills over the past twenty years, developing techniques and equipment for shooting and exhibiting 3D, including large scale museum exhibits, IMAX special venue films and a series of 3D books which was published in 13 languages. In 2008 he co-founded Vision3 to support productions both technically and creatively, with a specific focus on how 3D can be used to enhance stories and give genuine benefit to audiences.
Chris’s Imax and special venue stereography stretches back over 20 years and includes work on productions such as Wings of Courage, Bugs! and Plankton 3D. Alongside his stereo work, Chris also continues to shoot specialist 2D film work for features and commercials, including sequences for Darren Aronofsky’s ‘The Fountain’ and Terrence Malick’s ‘The Tree of Life’.
