It's not exactly news, REF is my shortfilm from 2004, but only recently I got around to upload it in good quality on vimeo. REF, apart from being my graduate film at Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in Poland, ended up being huge character animation study. I knew very little about character animation prior to starting this project and it proved to be quite a challenge. I even wrote custom software to handle animation which I then turned into commercial product and had been selling for some time.
The inspiration for the film itself was the beauty of martial arts movements ( especially Aikido ) and my desire to see B action movie scene in a bit more artistic way, without the usual revenge plot ;)
