The Philanthropist, Masters & Students
I was asked to direct two films for a prestigious client I can not mention. The idea was to showcase their other side but for these films to be abstract in look and feel. I saw these films more as posters and I was heavily influenced by Swiss Typography and Swiss Modernism. The premise being that although the message was to be abstract, this would juxtaposed nicely with clean, legible type and would showcase the two sides to this particular brand. Clean, clear yet beautiful and abstract. These films were never completed due to a change of brief, change of direction, someone didn't like the idea... Who knows, but it was fun while it lasted... The majority of the filming was done at Broken Antler Studios - we made a right mess! These are my directors cut. They're definitely more edgy and far more risky than the client would have liked it, but in general keeping close to the initial brief and concept that was presented and initially loved. I commissioned Sono Sanctus - sonosanctus.com - the mighty musician and sound designer who really brought these films alive. He worked closely with the visuals and me and created a fantastic sound to both films. Thanks dude.

Due to a change of direction these films were never completed but since most of the work had been done I wanted to complete them as I would have liked to have seen them.
