Grub, Grub…Glorious Grub

October 30th, 2008

We are pleased to announce that the teaser clip from our short film, Grub, is now online and ready for your perusal!

Grub is a short film we have been developing. It follows the life of an orphaned insect, discovered as a dark and mysterious egg.  Once hatched, the young grub ventures out into the city, an insect world reminiscent of a decaying and poverty stricken Dickensian London. The story unfolds as he naively morphs into insect society, revealing his place in the food chain.

We have so far made just the one scene, via the powers of Partizan Lab, and we’re now looking for funding to make the full 9 minutes so please pass on to all those you know who might be interested… or anyone you like for that matter!

Fresh off the Frater press this week is our promo for New Zealand popster Ladyhawke (aka Pip Brown) and her latest single, “My Delirium”. Working with Pip’s friend and artist, Sarah Larnach, we hope to have created an animated video that reflects her layered watercolour painting style; intertwined with live action of Pip mooching about in a seedy american motel. Now showing in WORK.

You can see more of Sarah’s illustration work here.

Also to look out for in the coming weeks is the debut of our short film teaser, Grub. Stay tuned for more on that very soon…
