Submission + - Old School Sci-fi Short Starring Keir Dullea Utilizes Classic Effects

Wierzbowski85 writes: Indie Kickstarter-funded sci-fi short HENRi features classic visual effects and storytelling – with a twist. As detailed in Cinefex magazine (issue 134), the film itself utilizes a mixture of the old and the new — combining live-action sequences with puppetry, quarter-scale miniatures, and modern CGI. Speaking with Wired, the film’s Director said: ‘The goal was to seamlessly integrate these different techniques to create the world. My philosophy is that effects are merely a tool to help the story, and that in mind, we used pretty much every trick in the book.’ The film also stars genre legend Keir Dullea, of 2001: A Space Odyssey. In a making-of video for the film, Dullea says, ‘Having done 2001, [HENRi] was a wonderful homage to Stanley Kubrick and that film.' The short is now available for free viewing online at Hulu.
