Panic Atack! / Small Movie, Big Robots. (By FedeAlvarez)

I'm from Montevideo (Uruguay... small country between Argentina and Brasil), and I wanted to share with everybody my last short movie.

It's about Giant Robots, coming to destroy my small city. I think maybe it's an attempt to make the city look bigger and more important.. least in the Giant Robot's schedule.
(Watch'it in HQ!)

It took U$s300 to shoot the live action, and then maybe a year to complete the 90 vfx shots (during very interrupted periods...)

I used Premiere, After, Photoshop, 3dMax, Boujou, Glu3d and FumeFx.

The modeling, mapping and rigging of the Robots, fighters and planes was made by Mauro Rondan. (

Looking foward to hear your feedback!
Hope you'll like it!

Excellent work Fede! And on a shoe-string budget! I like your style.

Didn't this land you a directing deal with Sam Raimi's production company? Congratulations! It's great seeing fresh talent given opportunities to shine. Make it happen! Good luck!

P.S. If you need any help animating for your movie, I'd love to help!

Fantastic work Fedalvar, amazing especially for the budget! Very inspirational for I'm sure many film makers - dont really need millions of dollars to produce nice visual work!

Nice film, congrats on the deal. Spend the money on hookers and blow.

The camera work/camera match IMO were really well done, that is what stood out to me the most and that great atmosphere in the beginning. Cheers

Hi there, g8 job, I was wondering how can you manage the crowd like that ? There are probably min. of 50 different people around and they are real (not a anything generated)...

Anyway, good job again...
