Fortress




Fortress is a short film (only 3 minutes!) by a Russian film maker named Dima Fedotof. He describes himself as a "CG Enthusiast from Russia." That's about all I could find on him... not that I tried that hard. Whatever. Here is the synopsis. I'm pretty sure English isn't his first language...

This is cartoon parable. Despite the fact that mankind is killed, the war still continues. War continued with automated system left by people. One of the last surviving bomber and its pilot still performs its task. The city is dead for a long time. Dead people who built it. Dead people who gave the order to destroy the city. And war will continue until subside echo of humanity.But life will always find a way to survive. Cassette bomb submunitions became a fortress for the grass.

Well... that sounds interesting... I think.

Let's check it out.


Huh... not bad, right? It looked cool, there was some good designs. He tried a little too hard for poignancy at the end, but his intention is good. So, yeah: Thumbs up. This was fun, short, and kinda cool. 4 stars. Would recommend.

What do you think?
