Mischa Rozema and PostPanic Pictures’ debut film project SUNDAYS completes a first step towards its Feature Film goal with the release of this ambitious proof-of-concept short. Much-anticipated and widely-supported by the international creative community (over 50K US Dollars was donated on Kickstarter alone for the live action filming part in Mexico City), SUNDAYS is directed by Mischa Rozema.
Set in Mexico City sometime in the future and starring US actor Brian Petsos and Mexican actress Sofia Sisniega, SUNDAYS is an ambitious philosophical science-fiction proof-of-concept short.
The end of the world seems like a nightmare to Ben. A memory of a past life that doesn’t belong to him. When Ben starts to remember Isabelle, the only love he’s ever known, he realises she’s missing in his life. An existential descent into confusion and the desperate need to find out the truth begins. This reality depicts a stunning, surprising and dark world. A world that is clearly not his.

This is the official SUNDAYS VFX breakdown from the PostPanic Pictures headquarters in Amsterdam. Produced primarily by the in-house specialist CG team at PostPanic, the breakdown also contains elements from guest contributors worldwide who supported on the post side.
Directed by PostPanic co-founder, Mischa Rozema, SUNDAYS was filmed in Mexico City and then brought back to PostPanic’s studio for the mammoth task of creating Mischa’s world. An intertwined, organic work flow defines the post production which creates PostPanic’s highly aesthetic artistic signature. Headed up by VFX Supervisor Ivor Goldberg, the VFX team all share an obsessive attention to detail and a passion for their craft is clear to see on this detailed breakdown.

I worked alongside supervisors Ivor Goldberg and Postpanic team from early stages to develop some of the shots both artistically and technically.
Shots required full concepts / matte paintings, 3D paintovers
and a lot of interaction between Vue / Maya / and Nuke.
