I saw Romanek’s third feature; the 2010 British dystopian drama Never Let Me Go starring Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightley. I very moved by the theme!!!

…Below are a selection of film stills, designs and a time-lapse from Barry Purves’s stop motion film Tchaikovsky. I was responsible for designing all of the imagery that was projected onto the set and also worked as a camera/lighting man throughout the film. It was incredibly exciting to see the puppet interacted with my imagery, the whole four months was quite an experience! Keep you eyes peeled for the finished film on the big screen later in 2011….
