A British fighter pilot pursues the german ace that shot down his friend across sky and country... with murder in mind. But he discovers it's not so easy to kill a man when you have to look them in the eye
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!
I completed all the visual effects shots, over 120 in total, entirely by myself here at Image Now Films. Dave Head modelled the aircraft (and truck), but I textured, lit, animated and composited the shots over a six month period in 2008.
Shot for a fashion show in two nights and edited in one marathon session, this was a race to the deadline to get finished just hours before the show started. Unfortunately the venue broke the projectors right before the show started and it was never seen.
Sturm and Drang from Wikipedia;
Sturm und Drang (German pronunciation: [ʃtʊʁm ʊnt dʁaŋ]) (the conventional translation is "Storm and Stress"; a more literal translation of Drang might be "urge," "longing," or "impulse") is the name of a movement in German literature and music taking place from the late 1760s through the early 1780s, in which individual subjectivity and, in particular, extremes of emotion were given free expression in reaction to the perceived constraints of rationalism imposed by the Enlightenment and associated aesthetic movements.
