This was a designers dream project, it was technical, creative and challenging. Myself and my super team, not only had to recreate actual people but we also had major elements to combat. What we created with a small budget, creativity and brains was incredible.

The boy who harnessed the wind-
Iis a 2019 British drama film written, directed by and starring Chiwetel Ejiofor in his feature directorial debut. The film is based on the memoir The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. Shot on location in Malawi. TBWHTW is the first film shot in Malawi. It was a difficult shoot because logistically it wasn't easy but Malwai offered up it's beauty in abundance. Chiwetel did a lot of street casting, which at the time we were so concerned that this would bring added issues but this was not the case at all. This movie will always be one of my most memorable.
