The Garden - E. B. Rhee (2015)

Proof-of-concept based on a new feature screenplay. The pitch: a sci-fi reimagining of "Paradise Lost". After learning that the sun is dying, a group of explorers set out into deep space in search of a new home for humanity.

Made for $30k with credit cards and small donations, the vast majority of the cast & crew are friends who worked on this pro bono. My writing partner and I first wrote a feature script, and in an effort to draw some attention to it, we decided to try and make this to give potential investors a tiny glimpse of what the movie could be like. The stylized visuals are obviously not final- you'll have to wait for the feature for that. We're indie filmmakers, and we couldn't afford to hire a VFX company, so we did what we could with what we had. For more info, visit www.thegardenshort.com

Ruben Monteiro - O Meu Nome

This is my graduation project made for the Master in Animation at AKV St.Joost, in Breda, Netherlands.
During the history of my family, several challenges and unfortunate events shaped drastically the way I am, as a person. 'O Meu Nome' is a story based on those challenges and coincidences, and in particular, how I got my name.
The project was made in stop motion. I rotoscoped footage and laser-cut, frame-by-frame, silhouettes of each movement. Then, builded the scenarios and animated.
