Half of a Yellow Sun

Carrying on from our summer of films, the sun is shining for us as we have been awarded the title sequence for 'Half of a Yellow Sun'. We have already designed and presented the sequence, after meeting a number of times with Nigerian novelist and playwright Biyi Bandele. The film teams us up again with our dear friends, Editor Chris Gill and VFX Editor/1st Assistant Editor Ian Cunningham and is our first film for Post Production Supervisor Emma Zee ('The King's Speech' and 'RocknRolla'.
