Monstro! is a short film recently debuted in North America and is a collaborative effort between Side Effects Software and Toonlets Animation - written, directed, and produced by Christopher Romano.
A rickety scientific expedition ventures down the Amazon River to a dark lagoon, in search of a mythic Creature! But the Creature, it seems, has a less than mythic agenda! MONSTRO! is a horror story. A love story. A ribald comedy!
In this funny short-film, the rigging and animation; hair, cloth, water, and smoke, lighting and rendering were all done in Houdini.
