Aston’s Presents – now as a film

We have completed a new short film called Aston’s Presents (Astons Presenter).
It’s a 9 min. long computerized cut-out animation for kids, based on a book by Lotta Geffenblad from 2008.
We’ve been working on the film parallel with the work on Spot and Splodge series. All animation work (except of a few small details) is done by our favorite animator, Elinor Bergman.

Since the film is a co-production with SVT (and FiV) it’s going to be screened for sure on the Swedish Television sometimes during 2012. But we also hope it will reach the theaters both in Sweden and abroad, and of course to many festivals around the world as well.

Aston is staring as a cover boy in the Danish poster of “Børnebiffen”.

Børnebiffen is organized by the Danish Film Institute to give municipalities and theaters in whole Denmark the possibility to screen quality children’s films.

You can also see our Spot and Splodge in Snowstorm (or as they call it “Prik og Plet i sneen“) in one of the Danish film packages.

And soon they will also have our Spot and Splodge at the Dentist in Danish.

Here’s the link to that document. Though it’s in French it’s easy it’s follow.
