Another film festival this time at Zline Film Festival in Kudlov, Czech Republic. Being screened as part of Zlín Dog - Student Animations 3. Big lovers of stop motion and slap stick comedy some really charming films are in competition over there. So if your able to attend it's really worth a visit.
The festival is held at CHAPTER and the film will be screening on the 6th May 2017 at 10:15am and 11:45am.
Over the last couple of months Boris-Noris has been lucky enough to be screened both in Blackpool at the Fylde Films Showcase and up in Manchester at the creative industries Trafford showcase. After dozens of submissions were so happy at B+N HQ to see the little guys out and about entraining people around the country/world.
We've recently gotten word that the guys will be screened in a few more festivals in the upcoming months so stay tuned for further updates and hopefully you'll get a chance to go see the film along side some great company in a screening near you soon
Boris and Noris first night out will be in the big old USA, in Allentown PA. This will be my first film to make it across to the US, so i'm very excited, the four day festival is a mixed bag of all kinds of cinematic delights. I hope the nice folks of Allentown are kind to the brothers, and perhaps even bring me back some accolade? we can dream boys, we can dream.
A few months on from the end of filming and editing, the film its way to festivals and to help aid it in its travels a brand spanking new trailer for your lucky lucky eyes!
Due to the university summer break, are access to our normal studio space and animation facilities have been closed from may through to September. So we've taken up residence in a local stop-motion studio, who very kindly has offered us space throughout the summer to help us get ready for filming in September. With a mammoth amount still to do for sets, props and puppets for the film, this was a real life saver and hugely appreciated.
We were also really very lucky in the fact that an old contact of mine - Wes Wood at animation toolkit has offered to supply us with materials to help us make the film. We now have everything we need to make the best quality puppets, sets, a props we possible can. All supplied form his online shop at http://www.animationtoolkit.co.uk.
This teamed with the very knowledgable, friendly and kind model makers/animtors at the studio were staying with- which will enable us to make Brois-Noris the best it possibly can be!
I'd like to start this whole thing of by expelling the name behind the film. This film was initially thought up over tow years ago in one way or another and was originally going to be called 'Drift' due to the main characters being scavengers and based of a real life set of twins based in my home down of Portland, UK- who where known for collecting drift wood, and having house filled to the rafters with the stuff.
After the film whent on a big roundabout trip becoming a much deeper more poetic film about brothers and loneliness, I realised that this isn't what I wanted to make, this wasn't the film I intended it to be. So, after making a rather huge change and developing the film into something far more bunchier, faster and al together more comical I decided the name 'Drift' no longer really fit, it seemed to reflective and elegant for this film.
I wanted something bunchy, more in keeping with the new film, but that still reflected it's roots. As the film was about a Dorset duo, who speak a mixture of noises words and noises, that sort of represent the people of my home town, I looked into Dorset words that would represent my films aim, here where the runners up:
This is a space for development work of my grad film BORIS-NORIS. A slap stick stop-motion film about NOT sharing.
