The Hurt Locker
Posted 12 years ago and submitted by Graeme Neil Reid | Share link:

Winner of six Academy Awards and six BAFTA Awards the film ‘The Hurt Locker’ follows a US Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal team in the Iraq War. It is a well made film with lots of great performances and no doubt hits the western public’s thoughts surrounding the continuing activity that many nations forces are involved in. There are some very memorable moments in the film and the opening scene where Staff Sergeant Thompson (Guy Pearce) attempts to set a radio controlled explosion to clear a bomb sets the tone for the whole film.

I employed Graeme as the sole illustrator and designer on The Dangerous Book of Heroes. The quality of his work was excellent and he was great at understanding what we at HarperCollins needed, and at doing it quickly too. It was a complicated project, and the drawings needed to be historically accurate as well as engaging for the reader and Graeme was particularly good at paying attention to the details which were important to us and the author. The project was on a tight timescale and he rose to the challenge, producing everything in time and to budget, with great creativity, speed and care.
