The Killing Fields (1984)
Director: Roland Joffé
Film Editor: Jim Clark
First Assistant Editor: Bryan Oates

We added the gunflash to these war planes strafing the Cambodian village.

Cameraman Bob Roach the animation pass with vaseline smeared over his lens to give the halated effect of gunfire. Costas Charitou prepared the animation as 2 runs through the camera, a hot 'red' pass and a fiery 'yellow' pass. Bob shot extensive exposure tests to get the best balance of glow and colour.
