Wayfarer is excited to have been invited by Ed Stanton, engineer for Orion Production Operations at NASA, to film Orion EFT-1’s launch in December 2014, and to have been granted media accreditation during the launch by NASA’s media office. We look forward to further shoots at NASA as Orion reaches future milestones.
Wayfarer will return to NASA in 2018 to film the launch of the Space Launch System as part of a longer term documentary film about Orion.
Leander is proud of his involvement with Disneynature, having co-directed, produced and filmed their flagship release The Crimson Wing in 2006-07. This culminated in the film’s French theatrical release in September 2007 and subsequent releases in the UK, Europe, and Japan in 2009. The film also screened at various international film festivals to include the Edinburgh Film Festival and has appeared on TV networks around the world, including BBC, Sky, and Canal Plus. Disneynature has been commissioning one wildlife film a year for theatrical distribution ever since and is committed to telling emotionally engaging, character-driven stories surrounding major global wildlife events.
LEOBO PRIVATE RESERVE
Wayfarer is proud of the film content we produced for Leobo Private Reserve, which features on their dynamic website (www.leoboprivatereserve.com) and in the two promotional films we produced; a short 6’30” that is being screened at trade shows and can be downloaded from their website here, and a 15 minute theatrical version that has been privately screened in cinemas in the UK and New York to members of the global luxury travel industry.
Wayfarer is due to return to Leobo in May 2015 for additional filming opportunities.
WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR / NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
In October 2011, Wayfarer produced the awards ceremony night at the Natural History Museum for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards, considered by the world’s elite nature photographers to be the most prestigious award currently achievable. Wayfarer invited Yan Arthus-Bertrand (of Earth from Above fame) and British Wildlife presenter Phillipa Forrester, to co-host the awards. Responsibilities included writing the script, directing the talent, commissioning original music by Tom Ingleby and producing all the graphics used during the ceremony..
THE CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA
Leander enjoys a special relationship with this globally acclaimed electro-jazz ensemble, having invited lead songwriter Jason Swinscoe to write an original score for The Crimson Wing in 2006-7. The score won awards at a variety of film festivals, including Jackson Hole and Wildscreen, and was performed live at the Union Chapel in London in September 2007 to a sell-out crowd. The music continue’s to gain momentum, having been used in various major advertising campaigns, including Armani’s Aqua de Gio global ad campaign and, most recently, as part of Johan Johannsson’s Golden Globe winning score for The Theory of Everything.
Ninja Tune is The Cinematic Orchestra’s cutting-edge record label and represent some of Wayfarer’s favourite artists. Leander worked closely with Ninja Tune during the recording of The Crimson Wing’s score and has worked with the label subsequently on the visual elements of some of The Cinematic Orchestra’s live concerts.
