A few weeks ago, Stanley PIckle Director Vicky Mather made a new live action short for an art exhibition in London called ‘Superstripe‘ – A cultural festival of pattern exploration. The film is a response to a very open brief of ‘Stripes’.
Humbug was shot in just one day and in it’s entirety had a two week turnaround from initial idea to final delivery- wow so quick! Here’s some character sketches, board extracts, a prop and a poster, click on any image to be redirected to the films facebook page. Humbug will be launched online – come join the page and we’ll tell you a sweet little story!
Synopsis: Wilf had a pet pig named Humbug, they were inseperable…until yesterday… there was an accident with the Eggman’s dog and Humbug was no more…
For those of you that don’t know, a ‘Humbug’ is a British boiled sweet (candy) with stripes across it- they taste slightly minty.
