Concrete Complete Post On 'Tropic Of Capricorn' Promo For BBC2

Concrete, one of Soho's leading high-end postproduction facilities based in Dean Street, has just completed the Tropic of Capricorn promo for a new BBC2 documentary series presented by Simon Reeves.
Highly experienced Matt Hall edited the promo, filmed by Sally Bowness and Mark Chaudoir, at Concrete. The concept of the promo was to show a visual line marker actually painting the imaginary line covering 22,000 miles through South Africa, South America as well as Australia, marking the Tropic of Capricorn.
Director, Mark Chaudoir said: "Matt Hall has edited the promo to Cut Chemist "The Garden" giving it a real rhythmical feel.
"As always Matt bought a lot to the edit & really gave the promo a sense of journey the Tropic of Capricorn takes, by editing a really standout visually powerful promo."
Red Bee Media's Creative Head, Sally Bowness and Director Mark Chaudoir filmed the footage in Alice Springs, Australia where they shot an Outback line marker traveling across various Outback landscapes, Aborginal caves and homesteads, passed "Mad Max" style abandoned vehicles through to the Tropic of Capricorn sign.
The promo was shot in extreme heat on a super16mm by Bob Williams and on one of the days, the temperature was +50degrees Celsius.
This promo follows the Equator promo made by Sally Bowness and Mark Chaudoir at RedBee Media and edited by Matt hall at Concrete which won a USA Promax Gold in 2007.
The promo is on air currently on BBC2.
