“Life is Beautiful” is a short movie completed in 2013, on which I had the chance to work. It is directed by Ben Brand, produced by Rogier Dorant(CAVIAR)/Niels Scheide and created by Fube/NMtrix. In less than 10 minutes it tells the story of Anton – a really short guy, facing challenges everywhere and all the time. Finally he decides that it’s time to finish it all. He is done with life… but life isn’t done with him yet.
After a 2 year journey the short has seen it’s premiere. It was a special moment to see it on the big screen, because I have witnessed the whole development of the project – since the first pitches and early sketches till the rendering and compositing phase. Although I was not involved in the project till the very end, I worked on the pipeline, modelling and rendering/shading aspects.
At the premiere I took a snapshot of the credits…
