I worked closely with Director Piet Kroon in the role of Production Designer on this short. The design required that the main characters were recognisable acroos the various sequence styles driven by the design of lugguage labels. The animation crew were scattered across the world so we cast actors for each of the main characters with film for movement and gestural reference (not for rotoscope).
Produced by Illuminated Film Co. Financed by Channel 4 & Dutch Film Foundation.
The film was BAFTA nominated in 1998. Grand prix winner at the L.A. World Animation Celebration. L.A Film Critics Award 1998. Audience and Grand Prix winner at Espino, Portugal.
