New Cyclotrope Film is here!

Ive spent the last month working on a project with Saatchi and Saatchi to create a short viral film for the next UN Aids campaign,

The film uses a cyclotrope based on my original film and i went out to south africa to build and film it!
The film was directed Wednesday at 7films in SA and was released onto TV in africa this week.

its hard to find it on the internet at the moment but this link will take you it!

I am in the process of putting together a 'behind the scenes' film which will be uploaded in the coming weeks!
