Danny MacAskill: Imaginate
We're proud to (finally) announce that ChristieHQ is in the end stages of completing a massive new project for Red Bull. Over a year in the making, it's called Imaginate and it's an utterly unique film... Take our word for it! Based on Danny's concept, the film, produced by Mike Christie and directed by Stu Thomson, will be released later this spring. In advance of that, we've also produced a six part series for Red Bull covering the last 15 months of Danny's life and the build up to (and making of) Imaginate. See the trailer, episodes and the riding film itself - as they become available - here on Red Bull's Imaginate site.

The Ceremony Films
After an exhausting but exhilarating few months, our work on London 2012 is nearly complete. We made the opening films for both Paralympics Games ceremonies as well as films for other parts of the opening ceremony and we've uploaded some clips of the films. The full length version of Look Up can be seen via Channel 4's YouTube page. We're now working on the official 'legacy' films of all four Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies, along with the official behind the scenes film... then it's finally over. Phew.

London 2012: Ceremony Films
We're in production on a set of films for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the London 2012 Paralympic Games. The films - by directors Lou Birks, Ted Evans, Bim Ajadi, and our very own Mike Christie - will be shown in the Olympic Stadium at the Ceremonies and as part of the global broadcasts. We can't say much more than that just yet, but we're both humbled and excited. Watch this space.
