The following is a short film by first time writer/director Sean Tyler. The writing, preproduction, and principle shooting took place over three weeks in Fall 2011 when his first feature film was unable to begin shooting. It acts as a short prequel and "proof of concept" to the feature he wrote and still intends to develop.
So with very little time or money, this ambitious film was only made possible because of a dedicated cast and crew, each and every one passionate about the storytelling process, and willing to follow one guiding principle set forth by the director... "to find new ways to do everything"
And that thought resonated through post production where the director and a long time friend began the task of assembling the footage and developing the visual style and special effects despite neither having ever touched After Effects or Premiere Pro before. So with the help of a couple of dedicated vfx college students pushing the limits of what they had learned in the classroom, they began pulling the pieces together.
