Jungle Book has been an incredible endeavour for the London based team at MPC, one that pushed all of us above and beyond what we had done before for scale and complexity.
A lot of technology has been created and implemented into the pipeline and new ways of working have been tried, becoming the blueprint for future projects. The whole team shone with enthusiasm and dedication and -in my humble opinion- the results show that outstanding level of passion.
I believe all the awards that the show won (which include Accademy, Bafta and VES amongst many others) are also the testament to that.
Being the Jungle Book Set Team alone as big as seventy people, I believed the most responsible thing to do was to take a step back and focus more on the managerial side, to ensure the machine was running smoothly for every production my department had at that moment in time.
However, I also had a few brief opportunities to stuck in and get my hands dirty with some creative work, to help the guys ‘in the trenches’, which is something that always makes me very happy.
