These films should be all about visual effects that have been integrated with live action footage. The judges are looking for stories where you have used visual effects seamlessly with plates that you have shot. It’s not all about the big visual effects shots here, the judges will be really looking out for impressive subtle effects that have been created to help tell the story.
- The judges will be reviewing complete short film or trailers, not assets or other elements that will be used in a film that hasn’t been released yet.
- If your film in currently doing the rounds in a Short Film Festival, please include a password so the judges can view your work privately.
