Photorealistic CGI

One astronaut's journey through space and life ends on a hostile exosolar planet. Grounded is a metaphorical account of the experience, inviting unique interpretation and reflection by the viewer. Themes of aging, inheritance, paternal approval, cyclic trajectories, and behaviors passed on through generations are explored against an ethereal backdrop.

    I would like to share with you our graduation movie RED DAWN. We created a lot of visual effects to give that short-film a special look. This is about the linked destiny of two giants: a king and a volcano .
