After over two and a half years of full time work, the animation project “The Lost Thing” is finally complete! Until now I haven’t been able to post any information about it, but now the Lost Thing website is up and running. Here you can see the trailer, stills and conceptual development of the film that I, and a small team adapted from Shaun Tan’s picture story book. I was responsible for all the animation and editing, as well as pre-visualisation, character rigging and contributions to everything else. Check it out!!
The film will now trickle through film festivals around the world, before an eventual dvd and blu-ray release.
So far (that I know of) it has been confirmed for the Annecy Animation Festival in France, the Sydney Film Festival and the Melbourne Film Festival, but I’m probably not meant to talk announce that just yet….
Its been a long project and a large amount of work for me, but I am most proud of the work and feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to help bring such a fantastic project to life. I hope you can see it at a festival somewhere around the world!
