Shinjuku at Night - Note the Atari Building

Shinjuku at Night - Note the Atari Building

I’ve been in Japan researching a feature project ‘November’ which is set in a futuristic Japan. It was an amazing trip and country and I really could not recommend going enough. Follow superrocketman on instagram @superrocketman

That's a Wrap!

It's been a long time coming but we've finally wrapped on the short film Hip Hop Cafe. It's going to be a fun one, look out for updates soon.

Pre-visualisation

Initial 3D location scan for Hip Hop Cafe by Phil Trease.

In pre-production for Hip Hop Cafe, we realised we would be very limited for time. In thinking of ways around it I asked a few VFX and VR friends. They came up with some genuinely fresh new ways to help the filmmaking process, including 3D scans. I will post a full article about this soon.

Spring Shoot

 

Is it Spring already? Haven't posted for a while. We're in deep pre-production on a short. Just wanted to give the British Blacklist http://www.thebritishblacklist.com/ a huge shout out for all of their support on this one. 

Screenplays

So there's been no superrocketman update for a quite a while, yet a lot  has been happening outside of seeing Ennio Morricone. I am currently writing and developing the debut superrocketman feature screenplay with the working title 'Osaka.' More rocketman updates coming soon. Remember to follow superrocketman on instagram and twitter.

 

Ennio Morricone

The word legend  is often overused, but to see Ennio Morricone conduct his film music live was one of those nights you don't forget. He didn't play everything, he missed the Untouchables theme and The Thing, but The Man with The Harmonica and Ecstasy of Gold sounded incredible. Thank you for the 60 years of music Mr. Morricone &  special thanks to Ania and the Evening Standard.
