Papercraft short film project dedicated to our inner child, big or small, grounded in the uncertainty of present time.
The film was originally created to take part in My Rode Reel 2020 shortfilm festival.
The making of a papercraft short film:
- props made from paper and generic household items
- the sky in the background is projected
- motorized dolly used for plane movement
- air duster spray to spin the turbine
- crushed charcoal to emphasize panels and generate runway dirt
- airplane model is a modified design by Hermercraft
- filmed with Blackmagic Ursa and edited in DaVinci Resolve
- no CGI used
- no stop motion scenes
A short mock story based on the Cybertruck and it's famous presentation, made mostly out of paper and filmed at home. I had a chance to work on this during the 2020 lockdown.
The film won the Four Walls Film Festival Award in Behind The Scenes category.
This also marked a fruitful collaboration with Düsseldorf based musician Gleb Choutov, who composed the sound for the clip.
The making process: the truck designed in 3D and converted to cut patterns, the usage of cutter required due to high precision details and repetitive patterns, some electronics used for lights, motorized by camera trolley and gravity for some shots.
Makeshift paper and stationary suspension has been developed for realistic truck behaviour.

The cover story is an asteroid to hit the Earth and end all the life in two hours.
