10 minute short film

This was funded by an Irish Film Board scheme called ‘Short Cuts’ and was shot in November 2007. The Budget was €70K, and was used entirely on the live action components of the film – leaving a grand total of ZERO for visual effects!
The director completed all the visual effects shots, over 120 in total, entirely by himself. Dave Head modelled the aircraft (and truck), but the director textured, lit, animated and composited the shots over a six month period in 2008.
