David Knight - 18th Jan 2012

David Wilson's remarkable development in the past year from his animation roots continues with a full-on action adventure for David Guetta's emotional Titanium, sung by Sia. It's a blockbuster narrative of an apparently ordinary boy (played by Super 8's Ryan Lee) who goes on the run after accidentally exposing his destructive supernatural powers while at school.

David W says that when given an open brief - Guetta wanted a narrative, and didn't want to be in it - he originally took a humourous approach to the script, but then changed it completely to have a superhero boy in a real world. Shot in cold, small town Canada, its less about superhero derring-do than teen alienation - with nods to movies like Let The Right One In and Elephant.
