"avatar days" - a fab wow & real world mixup

What makes this one special is the fact that it was filmed, vfx'ed and comped all in just 4 days. It was made as part of the "4 day Film" catagory in the Darklight Film Festival. 

It follows 4 MMORPG players taking about their online personas. As they tell their stories , we see them go about their everyday lives against the mundane backdrop of city life... but as their Avatars. 

There was a team of people on this with director Gavin Kelly leading the troupe. I worked on the 3d characters along with John O' Connell and Will Sharkey.

John O' Connell was 3D Lead.
