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.
