Cathay Pacific destination film

Close

Overview

Cathay Pacific Airways is Hong Kong’s international airline, with a large fleet of wide-body aircraft flying to over one hundred destinations across the globe.

Andrew W Morse conceptualised and directed a short inbound destination film for Cathay Pacific. After a peregrine species which soars on updrafts of Hong Kong’s mountain peaks, the film was titled “From the Eyes of a Black Kite”.

Many hours of aerials were flown, and many feet of 35mm film exposed, to capture stunning low altitude vistas of the extreme variations in the topography of the territory. Long languid sequences included traversing the Mai Po Marshes and Plover Cove at dawn, vast expanses of green hills, craggy rock formations on the North Eastern coast, fishing villages on Peng Chau, and the dynamic (at any hour) Victoria Harbour.

Landing our helicopter on the construction site of the new international airport became an historic event. As the DP changed a magazine on the film camera, the Director alighted .. and became one of the very first air passengers to land at Chek Lap Kok!

The film was one in a series of destination films screened on CX flights for several years.

The launch .. was a success. We were able to present this live on a Wireless connection during our Sydney, Australia sales conference on a location with very limited internet bandwidth. This proves the technology used .. renders light webpages which are easy to download on a browser.

Comments I've heard from our employees were all positive and reflected precisely what we were looking for: a simple but concise, clean and effective webpage.

We acknowledge the timeframe given to you was extremely short but nevertheless you have sucessfully delivered the project on schedule .. the critical success factor was communication and availability of Digital Tsunami's team.

I am very glad we were able to partner with such a professional team as yours and I am confident any other initiatives with you will be as successful.
