RED XXIV - Countdown


People usually think that dreaming means to imagine something that is impossible to achieve. For us is not true! In fact, our short film is dedicated to the people who believe that everything is possible, the dreamers. Be encouraged to choose your path and work hard to make your wildest dreams happen.

“Countdown” is the RED24 team’s thesis project created at BigRock, an Italian CG school near Venice. Within the course of 6 weeks, a team of 12 people imagined and developed this complete animated short movie.
