DP & Editor & Art Director
16 December 2007 | by davidknaus1See all my reviews

Director of Photography : David Knaus - ACS,

Editor : Craig Wood,

Art Director : Sean Callanin,

Sound design : Peter Miller,

Producer : Andrew McPhail. Shot on location around Broken Hill, Australia, this film was the first feature length film by director Alex Proyas after he completed film school. Filmed at more or less the same time as the music video 'Kiss the Dirt" by INXS with the same film crew and equipment. 'Spriits of the air gremlins of the clouds' is better known as simply "Spirits". Spirits was produced on a super low budget, but none the less the crew did get the minimum wage, and it was much fun to shoot. It was shot on 16mm,and all of the special effects were shot in-camera, including a night scene where a flock of Bats fly past the full moon. Actually tea leaves floating in a fish tank, shooting into a light as the full moon.

Worth watching.
