HGF Ostrava | from the world landfill to the moon

Two short low-budget films to promote the study subjects at Mining and Geology faculty at the Technical University in Ostrava. In the films viewer visits a sci-fi environment of lunar mining base and world covered by waste.



WORKING ROLE / WHAT I DID :

  • on set VFX supervison
  • 2D & 3D mattepainting
  • visual effects / 3D animation
  • vfx scenes postproduction 

In the first movie we move into the world laden with piles of garbage. Grotesque manner of the clip tell story about the near alternative future when people underestimated the need of environmental studies and rational management with waste.

The second short film transport us into sci-fi mining base on the moon. The message is clear – mining will still have benefit, because it is an activity that accompanies man since beginning of time.

It was fun working with the production team Action Please from Ostrava. We filmed both in the studio on classic greenscreen, and outside. Filming took place on location like the giant municipal landfill in Ostrava - Hrušov, where 200 tons of waste ends each day... On the project I participated on a complete post-production visual effects shots and scenes and VFX supervision on the shooting spot. Creating vfx scenes can be seen in two brief  breakdown video above.
