I’ve been a bit quiet on the home-front since Mary and Max. I have been plotting away in the shadows working on the preproduction for a new 13min short currently titled ‘Things you can’t unlearn.’ - A tale about a young guy who makes the right decision but only after it is too late.
I’ll be using this space to provide updates as they transpire, but am not going to give too much away!
Here you’ll find pictures of the characters and models as well as a few storyboards and other related fodder.

The name is finalised (at this point!)
Previous working titles were a bit long and/or obscure, so at the advice of my script editor, I’ve settled on things you can’t unlearn.
Previous titles have included:
•Traralgon 40 (Based upon where the story takes place)
•Dashboard confessional (Is also a band name)
•When we were younger and better.

Have just received confirmation that my 300+ page funding submission for 2011 Short Animation fund has been received.
I have 8 weeks to see if I was successful.
Now to find a producer...

After much too-ing and froing, I’m reasonably happy with the script.
I had a professional script editor read my script and she made about 10 pages of suggestions based on my 20 page script. It’s now down to 13 pages and after losing and re-adding a ‘moment of clarity’ (trip) sequence I think it’s much stronger.
I had a big backstory which I removed, and in a few fleeting spots, we get a vague idea of the back story. Much more mystique and much stronger as a result.
