Beautiful work! I love the look of this film. Would have been a lot of fun to work on. I checked out the trailer. It's too bad they didn't keep the blue colour that you had originaly. I really like that.

Yeah I saw the trailer a while ago. Good story and mood. The main actor ( forget his name) is perfect for the role I find. Sounds like a story that could come true if we continue to polute the world. Well maybe the story takes another angle..but anyway..
Nice images - well done.
thanks for sharing!

Its Clive Owen.

Neil, is that a Pink Floyd pig I see floating above Battersea power station? Did you get that into the final cut of the film?

Great stuff. I spotted the Natwest Tower and the gherkin. Looks like you also got Renzo Pianos Shard in there too. The architects will be chuffed!

Thanks for all of your comments , much appreciated!
It was a fun project to work on. The director was VERY specific about what he wanted /didnt want - which made it tough to come up with the concepts.
The roof shot over Battersea Power station is my concept - the film version had to be done in 3D ( as was the pig!) due to cam move. I like the shot of Batts Power station with bridge (on web site) . Working with such beautifully shot sequences in the first place was fantastic. Putting in all architectural elements in the concept was a bit tight ( space wise), but again the director wanted landmarks! - in the moving seq I think its all to blurred to see anything specific.

Anyone seen it yet? Worth a look? Looks good and I liked what the director did with Harry Potter.

Great work Neil.
It's got a very large, believable real world feeling.
I like the reflections and fill light, and the blue hues you brought into
the painting in key spots. Well balanced!
