850 Meters is an afterhours project, a 10-minute animated comedy short currently in production, produced by Thuristar and Lunanime, with the support of the VAF. We have showcased their work before on Kuriositas and this promises to be just as good (if not better) than the rest of their oeuvre.
The film tells the quest of a fame and fortune hungry wannabe hero, in a not-so-fairy tale! I can’t wait to see the finished movie! Yet it has been a long time coming, the idea was born in 2002. However, we are promised that we can expect the completed item very soon.
In fact, 850 Meters will be completed in 2011. As Thuristar move forward with the production of the short, they are also producing a making-of of the film. The idea is to follow the work of their small team behind the scenes, through monthly 2-minute episodes, each of them featuring a different production step. Here you will see how the idea came about, where the funding for the project is coming and meet the team.
Mostly Belgian, but also French, American, Norwegian and from Luxemburg, the 850 Meters team is working between London, Paris, Valence, Albuquerque, Kortrijk and Ghent, for a few months of afterhours production. You can find the project's Facebook page here.
