VFX Reel for Sci-Fi Short Film: DustJanuary 30th, 2014
The short science fiction film, Dust, looks very promising. The film was directed by Mike Grier and filmed in Japan in just 11 days. The cast includes Masashi Odate, Michael Lopez, Madeleine Lee and Kiyomi Fukazawa.
“A deadly new plague linked to a mysterious dust is devastating the countryside around Kabé—the world’s oldest city. Irezúmi is a disgraced Tracker living in the abandoned outskirts of Kabé. Hired by a Merchant of the city’s underground medicine trade, he has yet to find a cure to the mysterious Dust that has begun falling on the city. Little is known about the Dust or the unusual sickness it causes but as it continues to consume the countryside, Kabé is preparing to shut its gates—denying refuge to anyone outside the walls.”
The team has shared a new VFX trailer showing how they created one of the CG creatures and how it interacted with a live action character in the film. Progress on the film continues, with the team working towards completion of the VFX sequences.
