  • The Mutants - A Finnish sci-fi video game trash film

    Hello there! We have finally finished the english translation for this film of ours: the Mutants.

    The short was originally released in June 2012. It took about ten months to make, from the initial idea to a finished film. We had a large array of influences on the film, including such B-classics as The Running Man, Toxic Avenger, Nightmare on Elm Street, Arena and Death Race 2000.

    In addition to this, we wanted to make our film truly unique with the touch of video game tropes, HUDs, cutscenes and 90's computer animation. The final result is a colourful mash-up of different visuals. Feedback is highly appreciated!

    The lighting is really good; the bright yellows with the smoke is fantastic.

      Well to be honest, there are reasons why you do not see things like this on the mainstream networks, there are simple to follow rules, and you just about broke them all. I am not being rude I am just giving my professional opinion.

        Seeing that I am inexperienced, could you spell them out for me?

          It is quite interesting how you did this and I applaud you for that but it just doesnt really reach out to the audience. I feel like it was pretty fair up until the part where you have the announcer describing the fight and all with the whole health meters and everything. If this was a movie for a video game then yes but as a short to an audience I would strongly disagree with that because they can tell when someone gets hurt and dont need something to help them visualize that. It doesnt really make sense. The guy telling whats happening in the fight was also I felt a no. The scene should tell whats happening yes a narrator can set it and describe it but not through the whole thing. Again just my opinion, and good luck on your future endeavors. I like though how you put the refelection of what was happening on the green screen on the sunglasses of the scenery moving by that was pretty cool.
