My film “Le grenier” (working title. english: The Attic) is an animated short film. It is not intended to be a scary film but it is influenced by the horror genre and children’s scary stories.
The story structure will mimic that of a horror movie; starting with a slow build up meant to draw in and create curiosity for the viewers. It will lead up to a final climax and then a happy ending.
The current running time is 4 minutes and 30 seconds. It will be accompanied by only a music sound track and sound effect and efforts that the characters make but, no dialogue.
The visuals will consist of 3D background elements created in Maya and rendered with toon shader to make them look 2D. The characters will be animated in 2D using TV Paint.
Overall, the piece will be suitable for viewers of all age, including children.
