Tuesday, 12 November 2013 01:37

Another marvelous film to enjoy from the world of animated student films. This one from Supinfocom Arles where masterful productions at a school level seem to come with the territory. In "Tuurngait" we see what happens when an Innuit boy wanders off and engages in a frightening mystical experience. It took five students a year and a half to produce the film. In 2012 it had its festival run at 50 screenings and won 9 awards. The team includes Paul-Emile Boucher, Remy Dupont, Benjamin Flouw, Mickael Riciotti and Alexandre Toufaili. There's also several making-of videos in diverse cataegories such as the Animatic, Modeling, Animation and Compositing. You can see Tuurngait in 3D on Youtube, visit the film's official website and also catch up on Facebook. Enjoy this impressive work...

This project was first featured on AN last September. "Dawgtown" launched an ambitious Kickstarter campaign that came up short. After making some adjustments the creators have gone to Indiegogo ready to give crowdfunding another shot with a reachable $10,000 goal and a flexible funding campaign. That means that even if they come up short by the deadline of December 15 2013 the project still gets monetized. Gotta give credit where credit is due for the dedicated effort behind Dawgtown. Consider supporting Dawgtown on Indiegogo and help spread the word about the project. Let's continue to do what we can to further develop crowdfunding as means of doing business in animation and related arts. Check out the video from the Dawgtown team...
