What influenced it?

Our influences were vast and there were lots of varying styles that we looked at and had in mind. Too much to nail down.

A little background information...

This was a real test in seeing how good we could make a short film and we’re so happy to have achieved it.

How was the film made?

It was a real group effort with everyone including both our brother doing the music and sfx. All made using Flash, Photoshop and After Effects.
