Kung Fury

Kung Fury just had it’s premiere in Umeå and at SVT (also in Cannes a few weeks ago) http://www.svtplay.se/video/2970515

Lots of memories from the 80’s came back and I laughed a lot!

Big kudos to David Sandberg – director and the team involved with all the VFX.

Also watch the live stream from Umeå – https://youtu.be/WvyaURnDvp0

KUNG FURY is an over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure.

Kung Fury takes place in a variety of exotic locations; 1980s Miami, Asgard and Germany in the 1940s, to name a few. With a limited budget to work with, we had to solve this by shooting most of the scenes against a greenscreen backdrop.

Kung Fury was funded mainly through a Kickstarter campaign, where people from all around the world showed their support for this crazy project. David worked on the film for a more than a year with almost no budget but a strong vision, with the help of friends and family. Most of the film has already been shot, but additional filming and lots of visual effects remain to be done.

The film will be around 30 minutes long and released for free on the internet.

State Zero | Andreé Wallin

If you haven’t seen already… Great stuff from Andree Wallin. Really nice to see your hometown in an apocalyptic state :-)

Stockholm; in a post-apocalyptic, near future. The once beautiful and lively  capital of Sweden has turned into a forbidding and abandoned city. A group of soldiers fly in to investigate an old surveillance tower that just went offline. But when their boots hit the ground, the routine mission turns into sheer terror.

State Zero is a thrilling short film by first-time director Andrée Wallin. Multi-talented Andrée is an internationally renowned visual concept artist and designer. He created the concept and promotional art for “Oblivion”, and is currently working with the not yet released “Star Wars – The Force Awakens”.
