Short film Codehunters tells the story set in the port city of Lhek that is on the brink of collapse. A Pacific Rim state in a not too distant Asian future with no borders, no meaningful government and little law and order… Won the Golden Nica for Computer Animation/Visual Effects in 2007.
Fluid, desaturated visuals complement a brief glimpse of an intense dystopic vision. If only the original brief to develop it as a series hadn’t changed into it being a wordless promo short for MTV Asia.
