LIVE EARTH: Eco / Stage films

On Saturday 7 July 2007, there were a series of concerts staged around the world to raise awareness about our current global climate crisis called ‘Live Earth’.

Our little team at Maguffin made the unique films that accompanied the artists & bands’ performances not only at Wembley Stadium baut also all round the world.

SImon directed the films, Astrid Edwards fearlessly produced, Philip Richardson & Simon edited them and Rupi Randhawa, Thom, Hannah and Imogen assisted in all aspects of the production, overlooked as ever by James’s watchful eye!

We scoured through hundreds of hours of footage from Getty, National Geographic and the BBC archives to put together these films that celebrate the beauty of our world and demonstrate some of the not so beautiful things we are doing to it.

We worked non-stop around the clock over just over a month to achieve this goal, we’re very proud of our work and to be associated with such an important and essential cause.

We're very grateful to the tireless and rather brilliant Avid DS online editors Clive Mattock and Ronnie Newman at Blue Post Production, who worked for 3 days straight (without leaving the chair!) to conform and grade all of our 31 masters with enough time for them to be delivered and shown at the Live Earth concerts in all 7 continents around the world.
