The Chase

I just have to share this awesome new short film that's been making the rounds on internet. It's called The Chase by Philippe Gamer. Be sure to watch until the end or you'll miss the whole point!

While I feel there are a few flaws in this film, I absolutely love it! Most 3D shorts intrigue me because they either have a great story or great animation, but it's not often that they have both. This short really does it for me though. It tells a great story about a not-so-popular topic, aging, in an even more uncommon way, though gaming. Complementing this story are the fantastic visuals. The 3D is gorgeous and realistic but still has that fun video game feel. The animations are smooth and perfectly executed. I love the use of the different camera angles and effects, it really make the film, namely in the part where they're going through the loop. I loved the reflective camera angle and the motion blur and I could really get that vertigo feeling with the way the camera was used when the police cars were falling. I wasn't too happy with the voice acting or the actual acting itself but it did fit the style of this short so I'm not complaining much. Overall, I think this was very well done and I highly reccmoned looking out for more of Gamer's work in the future. Check out another video he made below, it's also another great piece!
