Written, Produced & Directed by Jesus Barrios
El Duelo tells the typical story of combat between a lawman and an outlaw in the Old West ... until a character completely out of place changes the destiny of their lives.
It's essentially a one-man project. Storyboards, motion capture, sound design, sound mix, edition, lightning, rigging, animation, mental ray materials, shaders, renders and compositing by Jesus Barrios. Production took about a year and a half from the time the first idea arose until the day of the final compositing render. Short film served to establish a workflow that will allow the realization in the future of complex 3D animation projects. The end result is a visually gripping story with an incredible soundtrack that surprises the viewer with a few plot twists.
