Jeff Victor is a fantastic illustrator and graphic artist – he creates art that equals the opening credits of Pixar’s The Incredibles and nails that vintage feel of The Jetosons or Catch Me If You Can.
Here at Pixellica, we love all things special effects related, and even though we mostly focus on Photoshop, I thought I’d take a moment to share this amazing live action short film, based on the Portal game series by Valve.
