    Astounding! I don't remember ever seeing the DVX look that good. Your work is one of my main influences on getting a G35. A great short film. Bravo.

    I watched the Similo teaser when you posted it on cinemek a couple months back. Glad to see the final product - looks great!

    your team did a great job. it really shows that you had a production designer and a good one at that. can you tell us a bit about the car scene and what was involved? i dont see a credit for costume/wardrobe and i thought there were some exelent choices with this.. who was responsible? also, is this a team of people you regulary work with?

    Ok, i will try to summarize some of the contributors here.

    Zacha is the "gay" friend co-director, which worked a lot in the script. It took him 9 version until we were happy.

    David Loher did an amazing job designing the similo/robot. You can see his wonderfull website here:
    www.scienceunderfire.com





    We have the Hebe´s voice over done by Sarah Jarman, which i don´t know her personally. She was recorded by the sound guys and directed by Mr. Kassana in London, and they did a pretty good job.

    JL. Legarraga is credited as coproducer since he put the money to buy a €4,000 DLP projector used for the car scenes (and it was later refund, lol).

    Original music for the film was composed by this four guys. They really gave all their help after reading a post on a forum. I couldnt have done anything without music. The problem is that we run out of time, so there is not all the music that we would have liked to have.

    Cyros Hogg made by himself the complicated CGI shot of the laying man on the road. Quite a challenge.
    As i said, what you see here is not the final result, and he made a much better animation and render one day after deadline. You will be able to see it on the website once the film fest is finished.

    Helena trapero helped me to find sound libraries and i finished the job editing the audio and musics.

    The Cinemek team provided the G35 beta adapter.
    I used a 50mm nikon f1.8 and a nikon 24mm (only in 2 shots) since i do not have more nikon lenses.
    There is a scene that was done without the G35 because i forgot it on my car. It is easy to discover which one it is.
    Camera was on thin mode (except for those in interlaced mode), since it is better for me when going to 16:9 and SFX are created better.

    If you have any other question i will be happy to try to answer them. :]
