Dutch commercials director, Mischa Rozema is setting his sights on feature films. Alongside PostPanic and thanks to their successful Kickstarter campaign that helped them raise over $50,000 in the summer of 2012, their proof-of-concept short film, Sundays, is finally ready for viewing.
Sundays, starring Brian Petsos and Sofia Sisniega, mixes live-action and animation with beautiful results and some truly stunning visual effects perfect for the near-future feel of this science-fiction short. Check out their finished project below:
If you're still not quite sure what to make of Sundays, here's the official statement from their Vimeo page:
The end of the world seems like a nightmare to Ben. A memory of a past life that doesn’t belong to him. When Ben starts to remember Isabelle, the only love he’s ever known, he realises she’s missing in his life. An existential descent into confusion and the desperate need to find out the truth begins. This reality depicts a stunning, surprising and dark world. A world that is clearly not his.
Here are just a few of my favorite images from the short:
While the project of making a short film is finished, there's still a long road ahead to make this a feature-length film. But with an engrossing story and visual effects like I experienced in the 15 minutes of watching the film, I could easily get lost in this movie and the world that Rozema and PostPanic have created.
