We collaborated with BAFTA Breakthrough Brit producer Ed Barratt and Screen International Stars of Tomorrow writer/director team The Brothers Lynch to help create the high concept sci-fi action short, Trial.
Our motion design team created the look and feel of the UI touch screens, working closely with the directors to design a look that felt realistic and in keeping with the narrative. Our VFX team then composited those shots and worked on some additional standalone shots as well.
Creative Producer Pete Rogers said: ‘The Brothers Lynch are very visual directors and they always supply excellent reference materials, making working with them extremely intuitive. They are ideal to work with, as they try to get as much as they can in camera, so we can focus on the key things rather than simply a long, exhaustive shot list. We look forward to collaborating with them again in the future.’
The film made its online debut on short film showcase ShortOfTheWeek.com, and also acts as a teaser for The Brothers Lynch’s feature film project, Residual, which will expand upon the world created in Trial.
‘… the visual effects […] are comparable to what you’d expect to see in a legitimate Hollywood production.’ – SciFi Gazette
