Short Film: Malaise

Malaise is a surprisingly intense short film boasting some Pixar-quality animation.  It follows an astronaut who is trying to survive a brutal alien attack aboard her ship.  The whole thing strikes me an an homage to Alien, though the animation style is reminiscent of Thunderbird 6.
"This is my final project from Vancouver Film School's 3D animation program. With Malaise I wanted to do a project that was both visually exciting and a demonstration of my abilities as an animator. The look of the piece was influenced by an array of old sci-fi classics ranging from Andrei Tarkovsky's Solaris to Jean-Claude Forest's Barbarella. For the feel and tone of the film it was to Ridley Scott's Alien franchise that I drew inspiration from. I wanted to pursue a slightly more realistic route for the animation so I researched live action movie footage, live reference as well as more recent CG efforts from America and Japan to help achieve to type of movement I desired. This project was a labor of love and I thank everyone who helped bring it to the screen. Enjoy the show!"
