Our discussion into the recently-released film of Henry Cakebread continues. How did he tap into another talent when it came to stylising “Weekend Wandering: The Outback”…?
Before we interviewed the freelance filmmaker and editor Henry Cakebread, we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of Weekend Wandering: The Outback. That’s the short BMXing / travel documentary film that he released across his social media pages last month. Apart from how he managed to blend the two genres of travel and extreme sports together, as well as adding a behind-the-scenes “Making of” element, there was one thing that particularly interested us. His blending of animated illustration with the live action footage.
For the next chapter in our interview, we had to find out what sparked the decision to do that. And if he had to tap into other hidden talents to pull it off. Aside from that, we also learn about how his plans for release developed over time.
If you have no idea what we’re talking about so far, you probably need to catch up with Henry’s story. Part 1 is available here, dealing with how he first entered filmmaking and BMXing. And Part 2 features an in-depth discussion about the production of Weekend Wandering: The Outback.
