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.
