Red Giant, the developer of awesome VFX plug-ins such as Magic Bullet and the Trapcode suite have ably demonstrated the immense power of their effects tools through professionally produced short films. First, there was the astoundingly good, Plot Device that was released last year, followed up by the lighter Order Up and now, we have Tempo, an equally fantastic short that, like Plot Device, revolves around a singular and powerful piece of technology.
With production maturity has come a focus on more narrative and character development in Tempo, eschewing just a narrow demonstration of software prowess. This has resulted in an engaging project that captures the essence of the software giant and its target audience, while providing some great effects, action and all in all, captivating entertainment.
