I had a blast taking part in this year’s FilmSupply Challenge, which allows editors access to their high end stock footage to create spec ads and main titles for the competition. I’ve been on a recent Vikings fix, so I decided to create something around the equally intense story of Temujin, known more commonly as Genghis Khan.

I’ve been fascinated with this story since listening to a series of podcasts from Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History and tried to depict the chaotic and desolate nature of life and conquest on the Steppe. It was a lot of fun and definitely a different type of challenge than what I’m used to. Congrats to all the winners!
