For my 3rd and final year, I teamed up with Adam, Tim, and Tom to create this ambitious project. Inspired by some other frozen-time pieces, we centred our film around the chaos of a major train disaster, the intensity ramping up as the scene unfolds...

It was lot of fun to make, a ton of R&D, and felt a little less traditional comping live footage into a CG scene, rather than the other way around.
