Taking the worlds of Dr Grordbort as its basis, and created and designed by Greg Broadmore, the Media Design School’s steampunk styled Dr Grordbort Presents: The Deadliest Game is not only a dazzling example of the school’s craft, but a healthy introduction to the world of short film for its students.
The live action/CGI film was created by 11 students over 22 weeks under the direction of 3D animation program leader James Cunningham.
For us viewers it’s a film full of enjoyment, mixing old school narrative with state of the art visual effects to create a short brimming with charm and overflowing with technical expertise.
