When FX industry known Jack Moik contacted me a few weeks ago, I had no idea what he had in store to show us all with this newest project film… NYDENION. It is a truly incredible piece of work using both miniatures and CG artists to produce the finest film possible with today’s knowledge!
Here are a few words from the Magna Mana CEO (and master of Visual FX) Jack Moik regarding NEYDENION…
Basically Nydenion is our homage to the great Sci-Fi epics like Star Wars, Blade Runner and Alien. It was
started by me and a couple of students as a independent film project more than 15 years ago. We worked nearly 10 years in our free time in an old warehouse near Frankfurt/Germany on sets, models and tabletop miniatures. In those days was all financed by ourself.
In 1997 I stepped into the professional movie world and worked for a couple of companies like Panasensor who did the miniatures for Roland Emmerich. Since fall 2009 my own Movie FX company Magna Mana FX https://www.magnamana.de/magnamanafx.html helped with the visual FX on Nydenion. The Los Angels based US distributor Lonely Seal Entertainment likes to release the film in the US in fall 2010.
