Three of Australia’s leading film VFX houses, Digital Pulse, Heckler and ZSpace, have teamed up to work on the visual effects for the Australian sci-fi short film, Kindred
Digital Pulse, under Executive Producer Brett Heil, and Post Producers Annie Kinnane and Adam Hicks, have been hard at work setting the overall look and developing numerous templates for the other VFX houses to work with in creating their effects.
Digital Pulse have just released a tantalising preview of some early VFX concepts. Says Kindred Co-Producer Annie Kinnane, “Kindred is a very ambitious VFX project, but it’s a challenge – and we love that.”
Produced in association with Altaire Production and Publication, Kindred is the first sci-fi to star indigenous Australians. The short film is written and produced by Josh Bryer, who is also the Post-producer liasing between all the VFX houses.
First-time film Director Oscar Nicholson has also mustered a team of volunteers led by VFX Supervisor Soren Jensen, working together as ON Productions.
The budget for the short film was crowdsourced through IndieGogo. An additional IndieGogo fundraising campaign for Post Production is in its last week. People who donate to the film will be among the first to see it on completion.
