Tommy (1975)
Director: Ken Russell

A variety of opticals but Shelley Elbourne designed this sequence which marks the beginning of Tommy going into a non-responsive state, leading people to believe that he is deaf, dumb, and blind. It combines rostrum camera, animation and live action.

Les Pace shot the rostrum sequence and animated the plane explosions. Shelley supervised the optical compositing and grading.
