A couple of years ago, I posted the first part to this on here. We've done another, and it's been nearly two years of work, on and off. Firstly, while I of course welcome comments about our film-making technique in general, the film primarily serves as a source of demo reel material to me - that is, I made it mostly for the experience. That's not to downplay the significance of many other people in its production - Liam, for instance, did a lot of intricate cloning roto and Paul created many CGI effects.

I'd recommend watching the first before you see this - but we deliberately wrote it in such a way that it's not entirely neccesary. If you get the urge, watch the first one here.
It'd difficult to fit this film into any specific genre - it works in action, comedy, horror, mystery, and several others. Mainly I'd define it as a deadpan comedy, if I had to. Ultimately it's quite silly and whimsical. It has guns, beer, explosions, and a ridiculous amount of rotoscoping. What more could you want from a film! A story? PAH! It has a bunch of movie references too.... loads of 'em... might be fun trying to spot them all.
THE FOREST II: RELENTLESS THIRST
A year or two after the grim events that led Mike and Liam to take a shortcut through The Forest, they find themselves once again beerless and in desperate need of a fix. They must battle The Simons to retrieve beer. This 20-minute, tongue-in-cheek deadpan action comedy is directed by and stars Liam Comerford and Michael Connor as themselves, and Simon Plant as The Simons. 3D work by Paul Canning.
So, there you go. I hope you like.
