After the short animation films “Elephants Dream” (2006), “Big Buck Bunny” (2008) and “Sintel” (2010)  this is the 4th short created in the Amsterdam studio with crowd-funding support. For “Tears of Steel” the ambitions were set high again – using as a reference the international standard of visual effects, applied to a fun and witty science-fiction theme in the old city of Amsterdam.
