“Medusa: The Fallen Goddess” Short Film
Four Paris-based friends (Florent Bizec, Frederic Colin, Fabien Gibert, and Sam’s Design) coil their collective talents into a moody and menacing title sequence-style passion project based on everyone’s fave mythological femme fatale.
Creative director Frederic Colin: “We created four different pitches to ‘sell’ the project to each other and then voted to pick the one to produce. Medusa was my pitch.
“The collaboration on this project was a great experience and we gave everyone freedom to make their own shots.
“It was challenging in terms of creative discussion but also in terms of techniques. We shared some processes and we also each used our own workflow. But in the end, we made the final 3D render on Redshift for Cinema 4d and Houdini.”
