Sony Bravia Director Ben Tricklebank

Even though this looks pretty straight forward, it was a wonderfully crazy challenge, since the delivery was 6K HDR and early on it was decided to shoot all the sky plates and comp them in, as opposed to creating CG background mattes from concept artwork. We had to go deep into the Atamcama desert at night, one of the darkest places on earth, far from any light contamination of the bigger cities, and still shoot long exposures. But in return, the starry night skies were gorgeous. Even to the naked eye, everything was visible, the depth of space was just incredible and something you never see, living in a normal large city.
