Project 23 emerged a few months ago as an idea for a short film inspired by a well-known game Another World . Initialy it was planned as a short promo video for the Pixel Heaven 2014 event, but during months of preparation it became clear that it will be something much bigger.Over 800h of work, months of preparation, 5 shooting days, weeks of postproduction, countless hours spent on building movie props and set pieces.

We tried to make a video, based on memorable intro from the game, edited with a few most interested elements of gameplay. Groundbreaking story, cinematic music, famous cut-scenes and realistic animation from original game engraved in memory of gamers for a long time. During production we had a full support from Eric Cachi (author of the game). Unfortunately due to the budget and time constraints not all of planned shots were finally made. We have a lot concept designs for most recognizable parts of "Another World", they are our foundation for the next step of our work - 15+ minutes short film in the "Another World" universe. If you liked our work, please support us by sharing our short film all over the world. Do you think that Another World-the movie kickstarter is a good idea? Please e-mail us and let us know what do you think!

Many talented artists were involved in this project : concept designer Maciej Rebisz , set designer Wito Bałtuszys, composer Topcut and VFX team For more information please visit production blog or our facebook page.More than 25 people helped us during the shooting and now is the right time to say big THANK YOU.
