Fubar Redux is an epic short sci fi film portraying the atrocities of an on-going political war for territories. Situated in an alternate reality inhabited by cats and dogs, the movie is full of exciting action scenes and tense drama, cleverly depicted by a totally unique animation visual style: Hyper-Motion Comic Cinema.
It was created entirely inside Nuke’s 3D compositing environment, with technology sponsor support by The Foundry, Shotgun Software, Gen-Arts and Peregrine Labs.
HaZ is a visual effects supervisor who spent just under 2 years from pre-production to the Fubar Redux complete short, working in between on his freelance gigs in film, TV and commercials. He enlisted support from Audio talents Luis Almau and Henning Knophel for the cinematic score & sound design and the editorial ninja skills of Deelan Sital.
Fubar Redux was selected for the Cannes 2012 Short Film Corner. In addition, it was also screened at various international festivals including FMX 2012 where film-maker HaZ did a presentation revealing how he created every shot entirely inside Nuke’s 3D compositing space with no CG or 3D Rendering used at all. All animation and renders came directly from Nuke in order to create this unique cinematic motion comic short film.
