Inspired by the glorious action movies of the VHS heydey, the video includes all those things we associate with the 80s, like a Lamborghini Countach and Kung Fu kicks - but with added zaniness of evil Nazis, time travel and some Viking babes with lots of firepower.
In all, Fido produced about 90% of all VFX in the "Kung Fury" short film – that's over 400 effects shots! These effects included the eight shots created for the David Hasselhoff ‘True Survivor’ accompanying music video.”
The Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $630,000 helped a total of 46 people work on Kung Fury during the seven-month production process, which concluded in April 2015. The final result is an over-the-top “30-minute roller-coaster filled with action, humor and VFX” and the “True Survivor” music video that is a blend of VHS visuals and pounding Eighties synths.
