For this documentary about the IRA bombing of the Grand Hotel in Brighton in 1984, we provided a 1/4 scale breakaway model of the interior of the hotel room, through which a scale section of the chimney could be dropped.

Three takes were shot, each with two cameras, allowing the editor to build a sequence illustrating the chimney stack plummeting though several floors of the hotel.

This sequence was nominated for a BAFTA for Best Special Effects in 2005.
