From the Mac display to the cinema screen. A moment of anxiety. Would the film survive the transition? Would we? Dancing pixels and suicide notes? No way! It looked pretty damn good, too be honest, praise to the animators. Heading for sound mix. Will also try to cut a teaser in the not to distant future and post it here.
Animation was completed today, just minor tweaks and we got ourselves a film! Music is also 90% finished, ready for sound mix this week.
Here you will find news, preview stills and trailers from our animated short film Shhh! which is currently in production.
The film is based on the award winning Norwegian cartoon artist Jason’s (aka John Arne Sæterøy) graphic novel with the same title, or more precisely the first part of the book.
Shhh! is produced by Hans Bastian Borg at Graceland Film Company AS and directed by Robert Næss (that’s me). Animation is done by Lyder Janøy and Aasmund Janøy at Animidas animation studio – both companies based in Oslo, Norway. The production is financed by The Norwegian Film Institute.
Still very much a work in progess, but gives you a pretty good idea of how it will look.
