Walking on Air

by Syd Briscoe

Qatar Airways: “A World Like Never Before” - 60s

Qatar Airways encourage their passengers to see the world differently with this charming film. Blending animation, physical sets, and live action, director Ben Scott draws us into a heightened, whimsical version of reality.

Evoking the golden era of musicals, an orchestral soundtrack accompanies one family's adventures across the globe. Whether they're frolicking through the sun-kissed streets of Paris or ice skating in snowy New York, purple-clad flight attendants are always available to offer a hand.

Restrained choreography adds to the film's vintage feel, while sharply-designed sets ensure a tangible spectacle. Perhaps this is what the world always looks like when you're rich enough to fly first class... at any rate, this upbeat film makes travelling the world look most appealing.
