A contemporary spin on the seminal novel by Daniel Defoe. Shot in Yorkshire, England and Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. The English back story set against the Monmouth Rebellion contrasted vividly with Crusoe’s naval and island adventures. Design challenges included creating the 18th Century sets and locations in York with a minimum of digital extension and the Crusoe’s breathtaking island treehouses, caves and ships in Africa. Miniatures were used for the dramatic finale when the tree house village was consumed by fire.
