Watch: Eric Balfour and company try to escape the invasion in 'Skyline'
Five new clips from this 'low budget' adventure look anything but
The story behind "Skyline" is pretty interesting: two brother's with a special effects house (Hydraulx Filmz) get inspired to shoot an alien invasion flick in one of their condos. They hire mostly TV talent and with a tiny crew put a movie together that gets picket up by a major studio!
Ok, these guys were pros already, (Hydraulx was working on 'Battle for Los Angeles" for Sony while finishing this) but "Skyline" is truly a great example of what digital effects technology can do nowadays, and will be held up by many a penny pinching studio exec as what is possible "on a budget" for years to come.
In the clips below, we can see some of the large scale destruction that the Strause bros rained down on their apartment complex -virtually- without once disturbing any of the neighbors, (except maybe by Balfour's screaming?) enjoy. (note: in a strange move for this kind of movie, larger high definition clips were not provided to the press)
