OMEGA, a Trippy CGI VFX Animation

Check out this fantastic example of stop-motion skill and creativity the short film called “Omega”. The end of evolution awaits in a wasteland dominated by bizarre trash formations, dust and rock. From the scattered remains of a long forgotten culture an electric ecosystem rapidly evolves into the ultimate form of existence…

The mechanical life form Ohm inhabits a bleak and devastated planet. The thousands of mechanical creatures of this world share a single cycle of energy. In this cycle, Ohm is a rogue element. His nature is to devour and absorb others. When one day a gargantuan foreign object appears in the skies. Drawn in by mysterious creatures of light, the Ohm tracks them across the planet, changing the known order of matter, time and space.

Directed by Eva Franz and Andy Goralczyk this extraordinary animated short film fuses high-end CGI and photographic images, miniature sets and traditional stop-motion puppet animation. For more information, please see the credit below.
