View Full Version : Group Project: Film Trailer - "Day of the Triffids"

11 November 2006, 02:52 AM
A group of 4 of us at Portsmouth Uni are making a movie trailer for a (Shaun of the Dead style) remake of "Day of the Triffids" We've had 5 weeks worth of work on R&D have an animatic and have already shot some of the shots. Going to be doing a fair amount of VFX work with HD footage and a few full CG shots.

More to come soon...

Our Deadline is January 24th, so watch this space for a monster long post! C&C will be more than welcome, as we're aiming for a high mark.
