As a short film filmmaker myself, I can attest that good short films are really difficult to make. Which is why I find this piece to be so compelling. It’s every bit as beautiful as anything created in Hollywood.
Arev Manoukian, the director/editor of Nuit Blanche, won the$100,000 grand prize of the LG Life’s Good FilmFest a year ago. Manoukian says the video had a $10,000 budget.
There’s also a Making of Nuit Blanche video that shows how the project was made. There are thirteen people listed in the credits and they spent six months shooting the video and creating the effects. Wait until you see just how much of the short is CGI!
