Client: Film 4

Brief: To create a promo for the series showing presenters interacting with classic film footage.

How it was done: Smoke operator Marcus Dryden composited celebrity presenters such as Dennis Pennis into classic sequences of films such as Apocalypse Now, Motorcycle Diaries and All About Eve. The older films required more work owing to the distinctive weave and texture of the footage. The director was Dan Chase at C4.
