Road to Buzludzha
In Vincent Filhine-Trésarrieu’s words:
I discovered the Buzludzha monument years ago, and I’ve always wanted to tell a story about it.
This building, located on top of a peak in the Central Balkan Mountains in Bulgaria, used to be the headquarters of the Communist Party and is now slowly decaying since the collapse of the USSR in 1991.
I had the opportunity to visit the building twice and I enjoyed the experience so much that I decided to produce a short film about it.
I wanted to try and convey the feelings I had when getting up there and slowly getting closer.
All the assets where modelled and textured by myself (building, sculptures, landscape, car, trees and grass…), using a variety of software such as 3DS Max, Speedtree, Terragen 4, Blender and Nuke.
I also composed the music; I wanted this film to be 100% homemade.
I hope you’ll enjoy it!
