This film was made for Rex McWhirter, a brilliant creative and good friend of MB who recently moved on to explore the freelance world.
We always try and send people off with a little movie just to thank them for all their hard work and Rex was no exception. As someone who’d made a real impact on the studio (and who will continue to do so in the big bad world outside) we came up with an idea that told the very simple story of Rex’s inevitable cosmic trajectory.
We shot it all on a 5D over one evening a couple of weeks ago. Shoreditch inevitably becomes a bit of a ghost town at 4am on a Tuesday morning and it was fun trying to capture that. Guy then created Rex’s ‘spaceship’ and extra ambient lighting in after effects – culminating in Rex’s ‘reveal’ at the end.
We wish Rex all the best in his new quest for adventure!
