Real Artists is a short film by Cameo Wood, starring Tamlyn Tomita and Tiffany Hines. Based on a short story by Ken Liu. It’s won 38 awards, including Best Short Film, Best Sci-Fi, and Best Visual Effects. The Southern Shorts Film Festival was kind enough to award me their Master of the Craft Award for Production Design.
I worked closely with Cameo from the beginning to develop the look and feel of the AI character, as well as the design of everything from corporate logos to futuristic thumbprint-activated locks. After filming, there were extensive effects to design and implement. Once the film was complete, Cameo let me go a little overboard producing artwork for our marketing campaign.
