The Shortfilm was produced during a semester workshop, called "Set Extension Workshop". We had 6 weeks, to come up with the story, plan the shooting and set up everything in the Studio. Afterwards we had around 8-10 weeks to finish the project in the post-production.
The goal of this workshop is, that the camera, set design and VFX-Department learn to work together, how to extend set designs digitally.
