Videos: The Sci-Fi Short Film The Space Between Us

This is the sci-fi short film The Space Between Us

The special effects heavy short has won several awards and garnered positive feedback at its screenings. The main selling point is the VFX done by a crew of 10 students at The Netherlands Film Academy. A solid pipeline was set up which ensured a coherent workflow across various disciplines. Most of the indoor action was shot on an extensive location at a concrete factory. The outdoor scenes were shot with the actors on a green screen set and composited with fully rendered backgrounds. The Netherlands Film Academy first ever high - profile CG creature Adam was a big achievement for the small team. FX was also an integral part of the film as a large chunk of the action takes place underwater. It was written and directed by Marc S. Nollkaemper, and stars Elsa May Averill, Adrian Brine, Jurandy Martien, Phi Nguyen, Sarita Ospina, and Kiefer Zwart. Check out the synopsis and short film below.
