Squid the film

"Squid" is an action packed short, following one man trying desperately to survive a devastating invasion by horrific creatures, emerging from the sea. What are these "squid" and why have they attacked human civilization? Is mankind finally doomed?

"Squid" is a an independent short, directed by Robert Olsson and starring Chris Ingersoll. It was shot on a shoe-string budget with the help of many talented volunteers. Almost every shot in the film contains some form of visual effect, including dozens of high res matte paintings, and fully articulated, computer generated creatures. The filmmakers have an extensive background in the vfx industry and wanted to put together a film that's not only interesting to watch, but exciting to experience!


" Squid has been a labor of love for a while now, but I am so pleased to say it's finally done! I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a talented group of individuals, that helped me bring some very dangerous creatures out of the depths of the ocean to wreak havoc upon us all. I couldn't be more proud of them and the film. Thank you to all that had a hand in bringing "Squid" to life. "
