About

Bones Of Essimer

Project 2014-04-15 23:30:58 +1200

Physical Realm Studio is a committed group of Film Makers and Animators who have combined to form a production company. We are all Third Year Bachelor of Digital Media students studying at the Southern Institute of Technology in Invercargill, NZ!


Physical Realm Studio's newest project is to make a game cinematic for a new game concept that we have created! We will be filming the cinematic using live actors and compositing some CG (computer generated) buildings and environments as well as some VFX (visual effects).

Slaves

Town of Essimer

Bones of Essimer is the name we have given our cinematic because the story takes place in a town called Essimer. In a world that is recovering from a devastating solar radiation burst, an ex-slave come slave trader is persuaded to undertake a dangerous quest to rescue a stolen child from a deranged cannibalistic bone cult that pillages and destroys villages and towns. The slaver's name is Kristana and this cinematic is her story and shows the reasons she has ended up on this treacherous quest!

Here are the concept designs for the bone cult's leader - Osseous, his main henchwoman - Collidus and two of the bone cultists/henchmen:

 

Oesseous

Collidus

We have a zero budget on this film and all the team members have put their own money and heaps of time and effort into making this happen. We have done what we can to keep costs down but unfortunately we have a short fall of funds. We need money for some extra art supplies to make props, costumes and sets and we also need it for catering for everybody that will be on set when we are filming as we will be filming on location out of town and everybody (actors and actresses included) is donating their time for free so the least we can do is provide them with meals! 

Bone Cultist Boneship

Physical Realm is offering awesome rewards to all pledgers! There are 8 different rewards if you pledge and details are in the rewards section! There are four pieces of Concept Art to choose from and there are special exclusive pieces of Concept Art up for grabs as rewards! If you pledge $1000 or more there is the chance to be on set during our filming dates which are from Friday 2nd May to Sunday 4th May and Friday 9th May to Sunday 11th May!

Kristana

Environment

We are fully invested in making this project happen and we can not wiat to share our vision and make our world and characters come to life!
