You’ll all recognise the influence here – Alexander and Sergei are having a lovely dinner together on the deck of a great ship when Alexander chokes on his food. Sergei comes to his rescue and they both end up at the tip of the deck, arms floating in the wind, Celine singing in the background…

*EXCITING NEWS! BRAND NEW INTERVIEW PUBLISHED IN PUSHING PIXELS! **

‘Back in the 80’s I began to train as a fine artist. Before I started that degree, I made a little book of cartoon illustrations. Somebody took that book to an animator and they offered me a job on an unknown project called “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, incredibly I turned it down, saying that I wanted to be a fine artist! Of course, as we all know, it turned out to be a seminal live action animation movie and when I saw the finished thing I knew I wanted to work in film.’ Joel Collins, Black Mirror Series Designer

Collide Soon Released

Collide, directed by Eran Creevy, will be out in American cinemas on the 24th of February!

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley, the film promises to be intense with incredible fast-speed vfx, explosions and car chases. Yet the story focuses on the love shared between the two main characters, despite all the dangers they have to face. Painting Practice was heavily involved in the production design and vfx of the film, with exciting previz, concept and set design work.

How far would you go for the one you love?
