VFX breakdowns for Confrontation At Dawn

Following up on our new short film Confrontation At Dawn, here are a couple of visual effects breakdowns:


New Witcher-inspired short action sequence!

Here’s our latest short film, Confrontation At Dawn! It’s a short action sequence directed by Christopher Puttock and was lightly inspired by the Witcher computer games.

Confrontation At Dawn was primarily a fight choreography and equipment test and on both counts we’re pretty satisfied with the results. It also marked the first time we worked with Tom Martin as director of photography, a role he’ll be reprising in the Arms Race web series which shoots in a couple of weeks (exciting!!).

As we gear up for the epic 7-day Arms Race shoot we’ll be doing lots of blogging and updates, so stay tuned.

Arms Race in Abney Park music video

The latest music video from awesome steampunk band Abney Park features a couple of clips from the Arms Race short film!

For Steampunk Revolution’s music video Abney Park put out a call for steampunk images and videos from the community. The music video is a collection of amazing steampunk clips (including our favourite, a giant steam elephant thing). We’re very pleased to have Arms Race featured among such inspiring creativity.

We’re big fans of Abney Park and hopefully this won’t be the last time we get to collaborate with them on a project…
