This special F/X-laden five-minute robot invasion flick is about giant robots “coming to destroy my small city. I think maybe it’s an attempt to make the city look bigger and more important… :-),” says the director, Fede Alvarez. About the production, Fede says:

It took US$300 to shoot the live action, and then maybe a year to complete the 90 vfx shots (during very interrupted periods…) I used Premiere, After, Photoshop, 3dMax, Boujou, Glu3d, and FumeFx. The modeling, mapping and rigging of the Robots, fighters and planes was made by Mauro Rondan.
