The German (2008)
Written and Directed by Nick Ryan
November 1940, during the greatest conflict man has ever known, an epic duel unfolds between two ace pilots, each willing to take the match to it’s ultimate conclusion. Unknown to the pilots is a fate neither has considered.
Shot on 35mm (anamorphic), and posted at 2K, the opening of the film is an aerial battle between a British Spitfire and a German Me 109, all of which was completed at Image Now Films over a six month period. This is a combination of Live action/stills and fully CGI shots. There are over 120 Effects shots in the 10 Minute film, all of which the director completed himself. Models were built by Dave Head at Image Now, and Nick Ryan textured, lit, animated, rendered and composited the entire film.
