Watch: FX Artist Grzegorz Jonkajtys' Dystopian Short 'The 3rd Letter'
Wow. I'm always amazed to find stuff like this out there, beautiful work that's just fascinating to watch. Why isn't this guy directing features yet? There's a new short you've got to check out called The 3rd Letter from Polish visual FX artist Grzegorz 'Greg' Jonkajtys. He posted the entire 15-minute short online via Vimeo, so you can watch it below. "A distinctive dystopian vision where humans utterly depend on bio-mechanical alteration to withstand the deteriorating climate." It has a bit of a 12 Monkeys+Andrew Niccol+Cronenberg kind of vibe to it, hard to describe, but it looks great and was quite entertaining. Highly suggested viewing!

We owe thanks to Twitch for first finding this impressive short film. The 3rd Letter, aka 36 Stairs, was co-written & directed by Polish filmmaker Grzegorz Jonkajtys, who broke out with his short film ARK but has worked in the visual effects industry for a while, working as an effects artist/animator on films like Sin City, Pan's Labyrinth, Star Trek, Transformers 2 and Iron Man 2. This was shot on the Canon 5D Mark-II featuring an original score by Audrey Riley & hithmedia.com. It played at numerous film festivals last year, winning a handful of awards, and was produced by Marauder Film. You can also visit their official website.
