Congratulations to the creators of “Slushy”, which has won Best VFX at the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIMFF).
“Slushy” is a short animated film created by a team of animators and VFX artists at Escape Studios over three months, part of the third year animation Module PR6001, a Studio Project worth 60 Credits.
In this module our animation students and VFX students combine forces to produce a short visual effects film, learning how to produce animation within the VFX pipeline. You can see the film below.
“Slushy” was completed as part of the third year animation Module PR6001, a Studio Project worth 60 Credits, overseen by UG Program Leader Michael Davies.
“Slushy” was filmed on location in West Horndon, Essex, courtesy of the family of third year Escape Studios games student George Morris, who kindly let us film for a day.
Jamie created the character fluid FX, character shaders, lighting and rendering, along with asset creation, and the matchmove for all the shots.
