'C' Is the Awesome-Looking, CGI-Free Hard Sci-Fi We (and Roman) Have Been Waiting For
Those of us bemoaning the near-death of the practical and optical effects that gave science fiction films like 2001 and Solaris such classic, timeless looks have a new project to cheer for: C, an in-development short film that purposefully eschews CGI and greenscreens in favor of atmospheric lighting, physical models, and cool shit that lights up. Filmmakers Derek Van Gorder and Otto Stockmeier are currently looking for Kickstarter funding to pay for the remainder of said models and cool light-up shit, so take a look at the trailers below, and if you like what they're doing, maybe toss a few dollars their way in support of rad-looking sci-fi. Don't worry: your donations will be rewarded with things.
