I think most of the CGI was duplicating a few real kites to make the sky look busier, with the exception of the the Easter Island head kite, which was all done on the computer. There's a video about the making of the ad where they talk about the wind dropping, so some of the kites must have been real.

I loved the way the flyers were being dragged by the massive pull of a Martin Lester ghost kite.

My first guess would be George Peters, but I could be wrong.

These do look like George's work but I'm not sure.  I recently saw an "alien" one which was very similar and I think it was a workshop kite.  Maybe someone on the forum can verify that.  When you take a closer look it appears as though it would not be a difficult kite to build.

George came up with that platform from my understanding.
He has offered it up as a workshop kite build over the years and there are a lot of home versions in Europe because of that.

Outstanding kite platform...... So much you can do from it.

I really like seeing Martin Lester's spirits in there though
