Inspirations + Breakdown: Aurora

Writer / Director Niles Heckman created this gorgeous CG-filled short film about “love, separation, and having to say goodbye.”

Niles successfully funded his anime-esque sci-fi film on Kickstarter back in February and the film was inspired by a lesbian military couple. Their extended service was transformed into cyborgs leaving each other through a space elevator. Make sure you check out the kickstarter page for pre-production character design, lots of behind the scenes green screen photos, and more.

Here's the matte painting 2D breakdowns breakdown, created using Adobe After Effects and Photoshop.
