This video is a breakdown of a VFX screen test for the film "Squeezebox." I needed to test how we could use visual effects to create a disaster happening in the distance. I wanted the main character to stumble upon an ominous scene where trees were collapsing at the base of a fire. The disaster needed to be far off, and out of the characters reach. The practice shots were then used in the film's Kickstarter video. The film is currently in pre-production. It won't be shot till late fall 2013, or early spring 2014.
