          A short film I did last year. It was fun to do and was mainly an experiment to see how quickly I could turn a short around. We shot it over 3 day and edited it in 4. The effects took longer, mainly because our greenscreen had …issues and I had to rotoscope much of it. I’m not super happy with the end result, but then sometimes you just gotta move on.
