PostPanic’s Sundays and Other Impressive VFX Breakdowns
PostPanic pulls back the curtain on the visual effects from its short film Sundays and we round up some of the best ‘Behind the Magic’ videos online.
PostPanic made news recently with their short film Sundays, causing major studios to go into a bidding war for the property.
