Here are some stills from Jonah, a short film I worked on last summer that premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival.  A warning about the adverse effects of tourism, Jonah tells the story of how a photograph of a giant fish transforms a fishing town in Zanzibar.

Directed by Kibwe Tavares, the film is visually stunning and jam packed with extremely intricate VFX work.  Kibwe comes from an architectural background and his company Factory Fifteen specialize in work that crosses boundaries between film, animation and architecture.  They have a unique style that is both realistic and yet hugely stylized. 

Building on the promise he showed with his first short, Robots of Brixton, Kibwe is definitely a name to look out for in the future.  You can see more stills from the film on the Factory Fifteen website here:  Factory Fifteen.
