We, as Babun Film, are an experienced group of people, shooting short movies since 1999 but using Babun Film name since 2002. We are greatly known and watched in our country for our non-profit works.

"Domination" is our newest and the biggest project. It's a short movie about an old species of earth, coming forward in the future and taking the earth back from humans for their betrayal on nature. It will be told from only one creature's perspective who is followed by some cops and caught on a rooftop. But cops see what it is when the city around them starts to be devastated by explosions those creatures produce. While the creature kills the cops one by one, we also learn their story.
It will be around 10-15 minutes and will be shot on a set with bluebox. Sevket Coruh, a professional and well known actor from our country will play the lead and we are waiting news from another well known actress, Ozge Ozberk. Also a famous music band called Manga is going to write a special song for the credits.
Shootings will start at the begining of Summer 2006.

What We Need:
We looked for professional help for CG on Cgtalk.com and getting some right now. But the biggest challenge for us right now is the future city of Istanbul.
What we need the most right now is some concept art on that account to guide our CG artists and set design crew. It is not going to be a futuristic design with flying cars, people in shiny suits etc. It is going to be more realistic with skyscrapers almost everywhere but different environment neverthless because there are almost no plants left in the world and that has a certain effect on atmosphere and air.
What You Can Expect:
We plan to get attention with this project since it will have a famous cast and some technical achievements for a short movie. Also we plan to shoot a music video for Manga as a token of our gratitude for their special song. That video will have the same environment with the movie and that means the CG work will be on TVs, too (At least in Turkey for now)
If everything goes as we planned (it is for now) CG crew and Illustrators will have something they can use proudly in their portfolios. Also copyrights will belong to the CG artists and Illustrators and they can use them anywhere they want. We can also exhibit the work and give link to the Illustrator's web page from our web site.
We don't expect to get any money with this work but there will be a looking for fund. If we can get enough fund, there can also be some payment but that's never a promise and even if we can pay, I can't say how much it will be.
