‘Life of Galileo’

59 engaged me to work as lead animator for Joe Wright’s production of Brecht’s ‘Life of Galileo’ at the Young Vic. It was a spectacular show all round, with superb performances from the cast and excellent (and loud) music by The Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rownlands. A giant 13 metre dome spanned the ceiling – upon which were projected various epic space sequences.

It was a considerable challenge creating these sequences, particularly in the freeflowing to-and-fro of theatre, but we pulled it off (to judge by the reviews). Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to show the epic final sequence, so here is a simpler one (alas also without the music).
