From the site:
“Bird” is the thesis film/music video of Jon Balcome, an MFA Visual Effects student at Savannah College of Art and Design, and was created through the collaborative efforts of 39 students and 2 crew members of Option D Films.
And a little about Mr. Balcome:
I have always dreamed of creating something that would really get people’s minds churning and feel that I definitely accomplished that to a certain extent with “Bird”.
After I leave Savannah (LA bound!), I know that I will probably be taking direction from someone else for at least the next several years while beginning my career as a visual effects art, so I decided to seize this opportunity to create something where I could have full creative freedom in art direction/concept of the piece. There are some amazing resources here at SCAD (software, film equipment, RED cameras, talented people, etc) and I wanted to take full advantage of what was available to me.
Check out the film’s site for much more info, including breakdowns and concept development details.
