Watch: John Stalberg's Very Trippy VFX Reel for Sci-Fi Project 'Limbo'
"So the good news is, there's life after death. The bad news is, it's really cold." Whoa. A very trippy VFX test reel for a new project from up-and-coming filmmaker John Stalberg Jr. was found by Movies.com today, and it's definitely something to see. Stalberg is the director of the Sundance stoner comedy High School (review), which will get a release next year, but in the meantime he's prepping a project titled Limbo, some twisted sci-fi about a guy, played by Gabriel Sunday (Archie's Final Project), who ends up in a weird limbo reality when he dies. Its got flying whales, tentacles and more. It's essentially a trailer, so check it out below.
Here's the VFX tests made by BUF for John Stalberg Jr.'s new feature project Limbo, via Vimeo:
We're not sure of too much information on this, as it sounds like Stalberg is just putting Limbo together now. It's listed on his official website as a feature in development, but not on his IMDb yet. Other than these details, that's pretty much all we know. We're not sure who the girl is. The VFX were created by BUF, the same company behind some effects on Gaspar Noé's Enter the Void. This looks pretty damn cool, and I'm not sure if it's only a sales reel for now, but I really do hope we get to see more from this, I'm intrigued. What is this even about?! You can follow Stalberg on his website or twitter, and we'll definitely keep you updated on both High School (which I saw at Sundance and enjoyed) and Limbo, too. So… what is this?
