As part of our ongoing effort to find you guys all the latest and greatest genre projects from across the globe, today we have the early word on Tristan Versluis’ short film “Pixel”, a tale of one man’s wild antics and over-sexed ego, which inevitably steer him into his own redemption.
“Pixel” was written, produced, and directed by Versluis, a multi-talented special effects man (Hot Fuzz, Sweeney Todd, Blood River) turned director. His main character is a man “living the lifestyle”, but this time the woman he picks up isn’t going to let his behavior get away with it, showing him that there is another side to reality.
The short has been in post for two years now, and its immense amount of CGI effects was headed up by the talented Jonathan Klar (wrangling over 40 post-production crew members and guiding them through the many stages of modeling, animating, match moving, and compositing required for the film), taking the time it has due to the restrictions of budget. As art director Melanie Light describes it, “‘Pixel’ is stylishly dark with loads of amazing CGI bugs.”
