Stratford Halo

It’s always nice to be reminded of an older project that you enjoyed working on, and it’s funny the sense of attachment you feel towards a real building that you’ve worked on the CGIs for. Everytime I go into London I can’t help staring at the Stratford Halo building as it goes past.

So we thought we’d share a few images from the project, including some of the background plate photography which we took for use in the final animation.

The evening photo shoot was a great experience, being this high up looking out over London and the Olympic site, as the sun went down. While standing on the unfinished concrete slab of the building open to the elements.
