The Indie film Monsters, released in October 2010, was a triumph of a single man’s vision. The film was written, directed, and edited by Gareth Edwards, who did extensive post production on his live footage to create a post-apocalytpic world.
In an interview with fxguide, Edwards talks about how he used a model from TurboSquid to create one of his effects. Check out interview #097 on the fxguide page, or open the interview video here. Look for the mention of a boat from TurboSquid during the river sequence discussion, around nine minutes into the interview.
