My contribute to this incredible effort by a marvelous crew and their visionary director was the creation of some visual assets in the concept art field: I mainly designed the little robot and visualized the militiamen. Did the movie poster and logo too. It was great taking part to this journey, seeing what a passionate bunch of great people can do. Hope you'll like it!
