A select few escape Earth's destruction to a distant planet to start a new life. What an exciting premise to build visuals for a pilot! With a fabulous sc-fi set to design the lighting for and breath taking landscapes near Stellenbosch, South Africa, this truly was a magnificent project. Shot with older anamorphic lenses on the Arri D21, the director & I wanted to evoke a retro look.
Directed by Bharat Nalluri, written by Ben Richards for BBC1.
