This visually deep Swedish short film is nearly complete. Lets take a look at what has been released so far...
When I use the word deep in my description, I probably should clarify what I mean. Jakob Arevarn released a trailer and some behind the scenes pictures showing off his companies latest project called Flickan and Sirenen (The Girl and the Siren). From what I have seen already, the visual style uses various methods to create a look that has a lot of depth and style. Silhouette cut-outs are used in combination with camera moves, moody lighting and the air of suspense. You can watch the trailer below. View some behind the scenes pictures on Facebook over here. Finally you can view Jakobs film production web site over here.
According to this forum post on our site, it was shot with a Canon 450d and animated using Dragon Stop Motion. Mordarmas also said he hopes to premiere at the Gothenburg international film festival in February. So for those lucky enough to see this in a theater, it is well worth the effort to support the film makers for their amazing work so far!
