STILL FALLS THE RAIN

Synopsis: Set in the gritty streets of wartime 1940s London, Stanley, a homeless boy, is caught stealing food from a bombed house – at a time when looting could warrant the death penalty.

THE VISUAL EFFECTS

I completed all 38 visual effects shots myself in roughly 3/4 months as part of my VFX degree graduation short film (With the exception of the 3d bus model by Evermotion, and the 3d car model by Simeon Patarozliev).

This video will hopefully give you an insight into my compositing techniques employed to bring war-torn 1940s London back to life. All work was completed using Nuke, Photosho and Maya.

BEHIND THE SCENES

In this mini featurette, you can take a peek behind the scenes of what was undoubtedly the most ambitious project I’d embarked on as a student.
