AN INDEPENDENTLY ANIMATED SCIENCE FICTION FEATURE
From the Grey Island, a realm outside of space and time, comes the Hasnamuss: a malevolent, god-like being who seeks to poison the physical cosmos with its malice and enslave the minds of free beings.
The pestilence accompanying the arrival of the Hasnamuss hits a remote gas mining outpost, where Collie, a young technician, sees her sister overcome with an incurable sickness. With the help of Khidr, an old android with mystical knowledge, Collie leaves her homeworld to seek out a legendary shaman to save her sister.
ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
In pre-production since early 2015, Grey Island has already been written, story-boarded, and cut into an animatic with a runtime of approximately 65 minutes, and animation on the film has already begun! The film consists of four chapters, each 10 - 20 minutes in length.
Financial supporters will be able to privately screen a new, work-in-progress chapter online every month as production continues, offer their creative input by commenting on each chapter, and receive an official film credit once the film is completed!
Due to the film’s low budget, a streamlined workflow has been developed to allow for feasible time and energy to be spent animating without sacrificing the quality or artistic integrity of the piece. The visuals are being done digitally in Adobe Photoshop and After Effects, and limited animation techniques as well as software plugins are being utilized to effectively tell the story and keep production costs as low as possible.
Grey Island seeks to stand as a testament to the versatility of animation as a medium for telling intelligent stories and pushing the boundaries of film art.
thank you for your interest and support!
We look forward to bringing something truly unique to life with your help.
