Cool Short: Tank – Vector arcade graphics never looked so good

Greetings, programs!

Introducing Tank, a new short film from Red Giant’s Chief Creative Officer, Stu Maschwitz. In a visual homage to vector arcade games of the 80’s (like Battlezone and Star Wars), Tank tells the story of a team of pilots that must take on a weapon of mass destruction in a battle to save their world.

So simple, yet so well done. A brilliant piece of storytelling.

Putting aside current 3D modelling techniques, Stu looked to the past and built the world of Tank entirely in Adobe After Effects, using math, code, and hundreds of hours of painstaking animation work.

You can see how it was made in the video below.
