Starling Bank "Off The Ground"

Elliot Dear
View Director

Elliot Dear has embarked on his first live-action performance film for Starling Bank. Drawing on his considerable experience in hand-crafted animation, Elliot avoided using CGI wherever possible in the production process, instead opting for beautiful model-made sets and props to createour protagonist's turbulent journey above the clouds. “Above The Clouds" harks back to pre-digital age, where tactile practical effects were utilised to create epic action sequences of blockbuster cinema.
