The making an animation feature film is often a long and twisted road, a seemingly endless exploration of dead ends and side tracks. Writers, directors, designers, studio executives come and go, adding their little stone to the pile, trying to leave a mark. In some cases this process takes years before the final movie emerges. I worked on three different versions of this project, over a 5 years period, before moving on, two years ago. There has been two more versions since then, so the final movie is unlikely to bear any resemblance with the early development images I'm about to present here to breathe a little life into this site. Those were created between 2004 and 2009.
