Congratulations to the makers of “Ambush“, which has won an award for “Best VFX” at the Reels Film Festival.
Ambush was directed by Thomas Grantley and produced by Viktor Fiuk. The 3D Lead was Efthymios Bairaktaris and the 2D Lead was Andrea Tomas.
Ambush was completed as part of the VFX Project, the final film-making module in the third year of studies at Escape Studios, in which students work together to create a short film, mirroring as closely as possible the workings of a studio environment. This is Ambush‘s latest festival award.
“Ambush” tells the story of a rebel pilot in a run-down speeder who must evade her pursuers in a brutal desert landscape. Ambush was created by our third-year undergraduate students, studying the Art of Visual Effects at Escape Studios.
