Unwanted is a short clip inspired by the introduction sequence of the film Wanted (2008). Meant to be a Visual Effects (VFX) demo clip, we wanted it to capture the mood and feel of the film - the over-the-top shooting abilities and the slightly quirky undertones - while setting it in a more localised context.
The design of the bullet was based off a sabot round used by modern tanks, with the fin stabilised central rod encased in a shell ejected upon exiting the barrel. We added a multi-stage component to the bullet as a homage to the original film, but also added a minature turbine to enable the bullet to reach extreme distances.
Visual effects and compositing was done in After Effects CS6, and the bullet was modelled in Maya 2012.
Footage shot on a Nikon D7000.
