Emirates airlines: Turnaround

EMIRATES AIRLINES: TURNAROUND - Looping exhibition film

Commissioned as a multi-screen video experience showing how the giant A380 is "turned-round" in super fast time at Dubai airport. This became a permanent educational installation at the Emirates cable car terminal in east London.

A 5 camera shoot in Dubai enabled the master time lapse sequence and the detailed processes to be shot, over which were composited the explanatory motion-graphic graphic sequences. The final film was "tiled" over a 7.2x3.5 metre display using 32 HD screens. We were allocated just one aircraft and had only one chance to capture all necessary information in the 1.5 hour slot.
