Das Tub

Lost in the icy depths of the Atlantic Ocean a World War II German U-Boat crew find themselves on a collision course with objects stranger than they can fathom. The truth leaves them bathed in confusion in this submarine drama of domestic proportions.

It’s also perhaps not quite what you were expecting from something which starts off so straight faced.  However, once the truth is revealed, if you think you have seen it all, just wait till the final few moments of this most amusing short.

This is a live action and computer graphic animated short film with 35 visual effects shots from the Advanced 3D Productions course at Media Design School in New Zealand. With fully computer graphic underwater submarine shots and 3D submarine interiors composited behind green screen film actors, this film was made by a team of 5 digital artists in just 8 weeks.
