Our team is very proud to present 'Waking Gus.' Our aim with this short was to recreate a dream that everyone could immediately relate to. Who hasn't dreamed of falling, that sickening feeling in your stomach as you plummet to earth, the ground getting closer and closer until...BAM...you wake to find yourself safe in bed.
We all had a fantastic time putting this film together. There were a few late nights and some frustrating hurdles to overcome. We had to balance our full time jobs with the time we spent on 'Gus,' but we're all very happy with the end result and we hope you enjoy it as well.
Thank you CG Society for giving us the opportunity and motivation to tackle this project. Best of luck to all the other participants whose work has been nothing but inspiring.
