The film, directed by Danny Boyle, portrays events in the 28 days after a powerful virus is unleashed on the British public. As a result, Clear was called on to produce 155 shots with the main task being to make London appear completely deserted. This ranged from simply removing traffic lights to the more complex task of removing cars and people from moving shots. One of the key effects sequences was a petrol station explosion which was shot on set and then composited with footage shot on location in London.
Meanwhile, Clear has taken on senior 3D animator Andi Farhall from The Mill to join the firm's six-strong 3D department, led by John Harvey. Farhall's credits include the latest BT Broadband commercial for St Luke's and he has also been involved in the recent Nectar campaign for WCRS.
