The Unluckiest Man In History

From the ruins of Hiroshima, an incredible story about history itself and who it chooses to remember.

For reasons I can’t remember, I once found myself wondering who was the unluckiest person who ever lived? The answer, obviously and tragically, is that such a person lived a life so short and brutal they never even left a mark.

I’m really proud of how this film — a commission for Fusion — takes us to that realisation.

In particular, I still love the opening sequence: the Hiroshima explosion from the point of view of the bomb. I spent many days sewing Google Earth images together to create this effect!
