The German - A short Film

Posted supplied by: Russ Reynard (Air Canada friend of Bill Bishop)

This is a 10 minute short film about a British fighter pilot who pursues the german ace that shot down his friend across sky and country... with murder in mind. But he discovers it's not so easy to kill a man when you have to look them in the eye
This was funded by an Irish Film Board scheme called 'Short Cuts' and was shot in November 2007. The Budget was €70K, and was used entirely on the live action components of the film - leaving a grand total of ZERO for visual effects!
It was written & directed by Nick Ryan and stars Toby Kebbell and Christian Brassington.
Nick Ryan says: "I completed all the visual effects shots, over 120 in total, entirely by myself. Dave Head modelled the aircraft (and truck), but I textured, lit, animated and composited the shots over a six month period in 2008."

I found this film interesting ... hope you do as well.  Best viewed in full screen.
