Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - bbc.co.uk - planete.tm.fr - fxguide.com: «Every once in a while we get a story at fxguide that indicates just how far and how fast the industry is moving. The post on Attila the Hun, directed by Gareth Edwards, is one of those stories. Edwards produced the 250 HD effects shots by himself in five months using After Effects and Photoshop. Averaging 2 shots a day, it was one man against the armies of Attila the Hun. Attila the Hun airs Wednesday, February 13 on the BBC and on a later date in the USA on the Discovery channel. The film was directed by Gareth Edwards, who sat in offline mocking up effects shots for the edit with editor. Once the cut was locked he then assembled the final and retired to his bedroom and produced the 250 effects shots in HD by himself over 4 months. Using After Effects and Photoshop, he averaged 2 shots a day. If you haven't seen the trailer for the show, be sure to check out the You Tube version at the bottom of the article. Our fxpodcast is with Edwards discussing how he approached each shot and the innovative techniques he used to pull this production off. "As well as directing the show, I also created all of the 250 digital effects by myself from my bedroom . I have previously won a BAFTA and been nominated for an Emmy in visual effects, but this is my first time directing a full-length drama." explains Edwards. The film was shot and mastered at 720P and with the available budget and time, Edwards decided to do the visual effects himself».
programme.tv: «Attila, roi des Huns de 434 à 453, était surnommé le «fléau de Dieu» par ses adversaires. On dit aussi que l'herbe ne repoussait pas après son passage. Ce guerrier redoutable, qui fit assassiner son propre frère pour régner seul, envahit à deux reprises l'empire d'Orient, auquel il imposa d'énormes tributs à chaque paix. En 443, ses archers étaient parvenus sous les murs de Constantinople. Ses troupes ravagèrent même la Gaule en 451 et pillèrent Metz, passèrent devant Paris et parvinrent jusqu'à Orléans. Repoussé, Attila s'attaqua ensuite à l'Italie du Nord en 452».
