VFX Short Film

Remnant (noun) : a part or quantity that is left after the greater part has been used, removed, or destroyed.

In an alternative World War II, mankind fights to protect their precious land against their very own creation gone berserk. The story here focuses on a defeated battle of fighting mutant troops, with one last foot soldier painfully crawling away for its life. With no commander to guide it, our main character hopes for the best. However luck does not favour him when the British army are on the hunt for the surviving victims.


Creature Concepts

We were excited to create a completely unique creature from scratch. Our concept artist Nora created many iterations of a bug mutant before coming up with a final concept. It is now a combination of the anatomies of a wasp, prawn and grasshopper. This was later adjusted by our modeler to look more tortured and battle ready.
