The Road to Guantanamo : Dir. Michael Winterbottom & Mat Whitecross, Sept. 2004
I worked with long time collaborator Adam Garner on the digital visual effects shots for this award-winning drama documentary. Although it wasn't an effects-led film, there were a number of digital comps required. The bulk of these were for the Afghanistan scenes (actually filmed in Pakistan). Our work went from the obvious - adding smoke trails, explosions and tracer fire to shots - to more subtle stuff, like painting out the Pakistani flags in "Afghan" shots, or making a prop spider's legs twitch.
The film was nominated at the Berlin Film Festival and won the Silver Bear there. It was screened on Channel 4 on the 9th March.
