2. Lightheaded
5 months ago
lightheadedthemovie.com
Lightheaded is a journey we take with temperature sensitive candle creatures who sacrifice what they know to become who they are.
This is my first independent film. My advances in 3D allowed me to fully realize a concept I never stopped believing in. I managed to create all of the visuals by myself on a Dell laptop. A brilliant thanks to Mac Smith of Skywalker Sound for his sound design and Thievery Corporation for the congruous soundtrack.

    I enjoyed the video but honestly Vimeo has A LOT of these kind. Same story/concept as the others and also featured in the staff picks or HD channel.
