Before we get to the news, if this has reached you via email and you believe it’s unsolicited, we apologise. Please unsubscribe via the link at the bottom of the email. Because it’s been so long since our last newsletter, our mailing list was removed from the system on which it was stored. As a result, we’ve had to create a kind of “Frankenstein’s monster” mailing list from whatever old ones we could find. You may have also received a “test” newsletter, which was inadvertently sent to everyone on the mailing list. Again, we apologise. Let's move on...
We’re very excited to announce we’ve completed production on the pilot episode of a new animated series called Bogan Moths. It’s the brainchild of Pete Ireland and Tony Radevski of Opening Act Films and RunTime Pictures, respectively. They approached us to produce the animation, and we simply couldn’t refuse. It was a challenging project, but a lot of fun. We’re not sure when and where the pilot episode will premiere, but we’ll be sure to let you know. In the meantime, check out the teaser on our website.
While we’ve been busy with other projects, we haven’t forgotten about Levare. We’ve been hard at work producing an animatic, which is like an animated storyboard. It’s a cost-effective way to visualise a film, as it’s relatively quick to produce, and easy to change. Interestingly, a traditional approach to storyboarding proved quite difficult, as there’s a lot of very specific staging that needs to be figured out, and it’s best done in 3D. The goal is to produce an aesthetically simple and rough, but otherwise complete, version of the entire film before going into production. The story and the way in which it’s told is what matters most, and that’s what an animatic establishes.
That’s all from us for now. We just wanted to let you know that we’re still here, and that our projects are gaining momentum. We’ll have more to share soon.
