Trafik Grafik was contacted to create an original short film to promote a project for a Belgian non-profit organization.
Watch here: Wanda
We were free to use any technique to tell the story and explain their way of working (without using words or spoken language). It was a tough nut to crack, but reactions were positive and after several viewings most people tend to understand the pretty complex process Wanda implies.
The film was shot using a Canon EOS 4OOD dslr, running on Dragon Frame software, who both did the job perfectly. One of the challenges was to only use paper, for the puppets as well as the sets. For us it was our very first film project, we hope to be able to create similar films in the near future.
Director/Animator: Bart Van de Plas
Concept Artist: Veerle Derave
Character Designer: Pascale Pettersson
Compositor/Sound Designer: Iwan Baeten

Re: Wanda project
Hi jahnocli ,
I can understand this. The thing is that this little film accompanies a lecture to explain a process of solving conflicts with children to their attendants. Few people get the point right away, however it seems that a second viewing satisfies most men and women. It would be a shame to make a film that no one gets , but within it's context it works.
Thanks for your remark!
