Post Mortem was created as part of a third-year VFX project by our students studying the Art of VFX. The film was directed by Toby Haslam and Ridma Suriyagoda, and produced by Aidan Callaghan.
Post Mortem is set in a secure facility, where a surgeon performs an autopsy on a mysterious patient. As we travel through the operating theatre, we realise the patient is rather less human than it first appeared.
Third Year Group Project
Group project work at Escape Studios aims to reproduce as closely as possible the real-world experience of working in a VFX studio.
