Visual FX for stopmotion
This short called ‘Dark Soul’ is from newcomer Tony Booth a.k.a Flash Flanker.
What I love about Tony’s approach here is that he instantly starts out creating a feeling that the world is off-kilter. The flashing imagery and severe lighting make the scenes fell more creepy even though they are well lit.
What really stands out for me is that he’s really working to take risks and experiment with the visual FX. The cuts between the other-dimensional accessories and the use of different materials to convey the slime flying through the air and finally enveloping its victim feels sick and claustrophobic.
Great job, Tony. I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.
