Viewers are thrown straight into the heat of the spot, following the development from a birds-eye prospective initially, to a group who have set up camp in the desolate outback below.
There is a clear unsettled feeling in the camp, emphasized by clever shots that jump between the busy camp and the imminent arrival of the spot's hero from above.
Colourist Seamus O’Kane explains more about working on the project, 'For such an action packed film, the images developed from a surprisingly delicate grade. Director of Photography Jim Jolliffe captured an environment which initially seemed fixed in its desolation, but yet contained a wealth of tonality and detail that allowed for a complex result.
The landscape therefore became a more defined challenge to any outsider which heightens the drama of the amazing action shots as the hero flies in to the encampment. The contrast of the exterior harshness paired with the plush interior comforts gave scope for a softer richer palette and Director Chris Palmer underplays the end shot beautifully as Milk Tray Man rides away into an approaching dawn.
This was a grade that was important to the action narrative but allowed for visual beauty and natural drama to be characterful in their own right. It was also really good fun.'
