After the Wave is about the aftermath of the Boxing Day tsunami, one of the most devastating natural disasters in modern times, killing 228,000 people across 13 countries in just a few hours. It closely follows the forensic operation in Thailand to identify and return home the bodies and in a sense, give the victims back their identity.
Working so closely with these tragic stories, not to mention graphic footage, was deeply unsettling. It honestly gave me a whole new perspective on what death and if I can go here in a work portfolio, the materiality of the human body.
I produced the titles and motion graphics work in this feature documentary. I also worked as an additional online editor to master additional versions, cut-downs and trailers for international markets.
