I did this short for the FX Wars, but with not only the "FX" in mind. So, I wanted to present it here, and try to get a CGTalk award, since I dream for it for 2 years now :love:.
The project is based mostly on the esthetic created for the F.F.Coppola's movie, but with my own environments. The only 'copyed' character is Dracula himself. I worked on the mood and the rythm, with a slow progression from the transylvanian country to Dracula's castle, and Dracula himself.
I did this project in less than 3 weeks, with no additionnal help (except a laptop for additionnal rendering). 10 shots, all slightly composited and color corrected. The music is from F.F.Coppola's movie, but edited to fit the duration and rythm I wanted.
