Directed by: Hugo Lilja Animation & VFX: Good Motion
We had the privilege to create all digital effects for Hugo Lilja’s magnificent half hour film The Unliving. The film was well received and awarded Best European Short Film at Berlin Film Festival and the 1 km Film Award at the Stockholm Film Festival 2010.
Our work involved drilling into a zombie head, exterior shots of a wrecked city, gun flashes and underwater-zombie-harpooning.
We also went though a ton of shots modifying all zombie eyes to look infected, cloudy and bloodshot in a way that wouldn’t be possible with make up.
Most effects were created partially in camera and completed digitally in post production to get the highest level of realism possible within the time and budget constraints.
