A derelict on the streets of a big city believes he's found a device of great importance - a window washer's squeegee. Setting off to unlock it's secrets, he finds himself trapped in a dangerous situation. Using the squeegee to escape, the derelict transforms into The Maestro and the city into a symphony of sound and light. When the squeegee is abruptly taken away, the symphony ends and The Maestro finds himself back on the dark streets empty-handed. He wanders to the seaside and tries to create his music without the aid of his device. In an incredible crescendo, The Maestro discovers that being a little cracked helps let in some much needed light. The Maestro stars Gyton Grantley and features Rory Williamson, Alex Thompson, Olivier Leimbach and Justin Stewart Cotta. Shot in Sydney, Australia at night by Tony Gardner on the Canon 5D Mark II using only available light with an original score composed by Benjamin Speed. Written by Adam Anthony and collaborator Edward Copestick.Written by
I love the time and effort that have gone into creating the main characters appearance, so believable. I found myself feeling both sorry and happy for him at the same time.
The stunning time lapse visuals combined with the orchestral score were breathtaking. It was also impressive to find out that only two of the time lapse shots were shot with a green screen, as the technical skills involved with creating a sequence like that are very challenging and have been executed with a high degree of skill and a refreshing eye for detail.
Definitely one to watch.
