This video was a finalist for best short in the saxxies for 2013.
Thanks for all the support guys. When I had to get In the ambulance back on the 16th, I had basically given up expecting the video to go anywhere. So to make it as a finalist is quite a good outcome. A bit more info for the video, I put this whole thing together in two days , except sound work. I've started using a hybrid workflow of ipisoft mocap with conventional key frame animation, and the results are both spectacular, and super duper fast.

For those of you who have met some confusion in the story, the piece is a bit of. Metaphor told trough some rather straightforward presentation. Quite simply, the medic here is a bit of a rich snob filmmaker, with a prestigious career under his belt. When a couple of ruffians show up thinking they can start trouble and take a shortcut to fame, they momentarily gain the upper hand. However, the calm and collected medic proves to us, that cooler heads are crueler heads. After he succeeds in subduing the intruders, he gives them a harsh lesson about screwing with people that you don't understand. He invites some accomplices over, and treats scout and spy to a bit of true voyeurism, via the amusement of some clandestine gonzo film society

(General update) Zach here. Thanks for the well wishes. I appear to be out of danger , still in the thick of some rough stuff. You all should know how awesome mcvee and ogg are for getting this together. I have another saxxy entry which was not able to meet the deadline, but expect that to come out in the following few weeks maybe. I like it. It's kind of the opposite of this one, in that instead of being short and dark, it is instead long and kind of joyful. Here's hoping that I can soon show all you guys the many great things I've been working on lately.

Hey guys,
This is actually McVee uploading the saxxy entry on Zach's behalf. Unfortunately Zach is in hospital due to a internal rupture that required emergency surgery. He's been patched up and is stabilized now though. He's making a good recovery and I'm helping him out as much as possible.

This entry wasn't going to make it but i managed to finalize and render it out for him. I Didn't want it to miss the opportunity as it's a pretty great short.

Enjoy! And I think i can speak for everyone when I say we wish Zach the very best in his recovery.

Credits from what i can tell:

Zach : Lots of things
Ogg Vorbis : SFX
Lars : Music
Rebbacus/Nomad: Models
MoRiarty: Painting
