Here's a screen shot of the film mentioned in the previous post. It is still in postproduction (importing over 70 still images takes time...).

Wings of Desire Lite

The Leverhulme residency at Newcastle University is progressing well. At the moment, I'm working with Dr Alison Williams in the the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology on a short film which fuses B&W aerial footage (shot on a commercial flight to Norway) with cartographic representations of militarised airspace. It's all looking a bit Wings of Desire lite at the moment though (no bad thing, I suppose...).
