I was brought onto this production to assist the great time-lapse specialist Richard Kirby as he filmed various tropical plant time-lapse sequences and shots. This was my first opportunity to really get a taste of how to manage a completely dedicated studio environment and I owe a lot to him for his guidance and advice. The studio was built at the infamous Aardman studios and it was a truly colossal feet of engineering to create a huge space that could replicate the temperature, humidity and lighting necessary to grow tropical plants successfully. I was also extremely lucky to learn from the best in motion control animation, because Aardman is absolutely at the forefront of this.
