+ - Indie Low-Budget Sci-fi Short Combines Miniatures With CGI-> 1 1

An anonymous reader writes: The filmmakers behind Indie Kickstarter-funded sci-fi short HENRi chose to photograph the film practically with miniature sets and rod-puppetry, as opposed to relying solely on CG animation, to create the uniquely visual world from the script. NoFilmSchool writes: "The film is a unique blend of traditional miniature and puppetry effects alongside more modern motion-reference animation, and the results are simply stunning.” The film’s director, Eli Sasich, explains in an article for Filmmaker Magazine, "The concept of using quarter-scale miniatures to create HENRi was initially born out of necessity – but I also wanted to use the technique because that’s how the classics were made.” In addition to the effects, HENRi pays homage to classic science fiction in another way – it stars sci-fi legend Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey) in the title role. The trailer and film are available now on the film's official website.
