Gamma is a short film about a new urban developer’s attempt to rebuild post-nuclear cities using ‘Nuke-Root’ technology. The film follows a group of researchers investigating GAMMA’s practice from launch to deployment in the iconic disaster sites of 1980s USSR. However, GAMMA’s execution is cheap and ineffective, rendering the city more radioactive and uninhabitable than before. Filmed in Ukraine and Kazakhstan with The Unknown Fields Division.
Filmed, designed, produced and VFX by our studio.
The film was filmed with a small team in Kazakstan with a small talent shoot here in London starring Martin Ashley Jones. We set the rules of the world by scripting and animating a little propaganda advert to introduce the film as if it was playing on TV in Ukraine at the time. The design and VFX of the world was lastly brought to life within our studio over a month post-shoot.
An original short fiction.
The film was part of a larger thinktank of designers, futurists, photographers and filmmakers as part of the Unknown Fields expedition 2012.
