The filmmakers behind the beautiful quirky short film Gloam reveal how they composited a CG creature into a real-world wood.
Gareth Hughes and David Elwell
Gareth Hughes is a Manchester-based designer, who has an interest in stories, music and writing. His spare time is spent on projects that allow him to explore unfamiliar creative outlets. In late 2011, he decided to try something new and began writing early incarnations of Gloam for David. Gareth’s love for musicians such as Atrium Carceri and Trent Reznor also inspired him to undertake Gloam’s score with little musical knowledge. Just something else he felt the need to do.
David Elwell is a multimedia designer from Preston, Lancashire. In late 2011, inspired by a friend, he made the conscious decision to create a labour-of-love project. Teaching himself the necessary programs, he set out to create a piece of work he could be truly proud of. Gloam was the result. David is now looking to establish a career in the VFX industry.
