My passion project, Thuggernaut, a short film that pays homage to the retro style and aesthetic of the 1980s, notably the arcade games and 'off the wall' sci-fi, that was popular in that era.
A labourer, named Fritz, is bored of his day at work and looks forward to his mystery date. However, little does he realise, his lack of duties have gotten him on the 'worker termination' list and he soon may have to meet his fate before his date!
I was most privileged to work with a fellow creative collaborative of mine, named Ope Yusuf, who I regularly had meetings with to discuss the possibilities of a 'retro-esque' score for the film. He provided me with an excellent arrangement that perfectly captures the fun and edgy tone that I was after, as well as an 'off-the-wall' theme that gives the film it's own identity.
After 4 years and 10 months of back and forth development, the project was finished in December 2020; story, animation, sound, editing and music. I hope you enjoy the film as much as I've enjoyed crafting it with such heart and commitment.
