Assisting Philip Haynes.
Born from an idea that Philip just couldn’t shake (and thankfully didn’t!) 'Respect All. Fear None.' is a personal project in collaboration with CGI agency FutureDeluxe. Culminating in a dramatic tableau, as pictured above, the project hones in on the return of the Rugby World Cup to British soil and the pure power and determination of rugby heroes.
Assisting Philip allowed me to gain huge insight into working on set and shooting in preparation for CGI. I got the chance to get stuck in, do whatever was needed and it was exactly what I had hoped for. Philip was a great guy, explaining his working process through-out the day and is hands on (as you’ll see from his demonstrations in the BTS video!) which helped everyone understand his vision for the project.
Working on this has blown my mind a little in considering what the real boundaries of photography are and it’ll be awesome to see what this partnership comes up with next.
I HIGHLY recommend checking out Philip’s blog for his take on the work and some snapshots of the CGI process (they’re insane) but for now the BTS film is below.
