New Animated Sci Fi Short film “Stranded” Currently in The Works
a new short film is coming soon from director Ashley Nicole, stranded a sci fi animated short about an astronaut stuck on the red planet. with music being provided by CRYMAIMUSIC the film is set to be released sometime in the summer of this year, this will be the first animated project of the young filmmaker. the inspiration behind this project came from the 2015 film The Martian starring Matt Damon.
this is new step for Nicole, since this time she will be not only narrating & directing but she will also be illustrating the entire thing herself. “I want to challenge myself, trying new ways of filmmaking and storytelling is a great way to extend your skills.” says Nicole.
to Nicole, and to many other filmmakers out there, animation is just as important since it demonstrates a different level of storytelling as mentioned in the beginning of this article. stone soup magazine states that “Animation is important because it makes us be able to tell stories and communicate emotions and ideas in a unique, easy to perceive way that both small children and adults can understand.” not only that but like so many, it's time that we admit that Animation is indeed film!
Nicole hopes to convey a moving story about loneliness, “this is a sci fi film but it's so much more than that in my opinion. loneliness is terrible and can make you feel isolated in your own mind.” says Nicole.
although she enjoys working in the horror section, Nicole love drama. “There is so much you can do with drama films, it's just a matter of how you do it.”
Stranded, a new animated sci fi short set for release this summer! stay tuned.
