Tell me more about creature design.
A: The monsters are vital to the movie's plot,
and they all are related to the main character in one form or another.
I tried my best to put on-screen what was originally in my head,
with a few exceptions due to my limitations. You can find these
creatures in the Cast section of the website.
The sound is familiar.
A: Most of it is ripped from the Silent Hill games,
and the music is from the Silent Hill soundtracks. A lot of sounds
are edited with a program I have called GoldWave, and others are
simply royalty free that you can find anywhere on the net. I suggest
you experience the movie with good headphones and the sound turned
up to fully appreciate the sound design that the Silent Hill team
had accomplished with their franchise.
How long does it take to render a shot?
A: A four second shot, rendered in multiple passes
(to keep my PC from blowing up), takes roughly a total of 5 to 6
hours. Some shots took up to 24 hours due to their complexity! Of
course, there are exceptions. I usually just left my PC running
all day and night to keep the work process flowing smoothly.
