Copper “The Unfair Advantage” by Diarmid Harrison-Murray and Untold Studios
Strange and wonderful things are happening in the mountains of Iceland courtesy of director Diarmid Harrison-Murray, the VFX crew at Untold Studios in London, and actress Rebecca Ferguson (Dune, multiple Mission Impossible‘s).
Director Diarmid Harrison-Murray: “This was a very agile and dynamic process from the start. The brief came in from Adam Parry at Piccadilly Curtains and our visions were creatively aligned from the beginning.
“I wanted to make a film in which the visual effects were borne out of the landscape and inspired by its form; a revelation of hidden realities within, rather than a digital overlay.
“Also Rebecca’s journey and presence throughout these worlds were important to me as it gives the film a humanity that can sometimes be lost with big VFX shots.”
