This is group project completed for a Masters Degree assignment at Bournemouth University is the space of 7 weeks. The idea revolves around a climber who is casually hiking up a mountain suddenly comes across a massive mountain monster that has just awoken. We really pushed for an epic feel and sense of awe! All work was carried out by the 5 of us which included everything from shooting to compositing to a final standard. The piece was influenced by a number of big Hollywood movies such as Godzilla and Pacific Rim.
