aug 30 2010

We're proud to announce that, after years of animating in-between the acts of other projects, our short film Olaf will finally premiere at The Dutch Film Festival (NFF) , held in the city of Utrecht at the end of September 2010. It will be shown to the world for the very first time on Saturday the 25th of September, at 16:15, just before the movie Bardsongs (Cinema Delicatessen and Sander Francken), in theater City/Movies, Voorstraat 89, Utrecht.

Our short film is a fairytale about the titular hero Olaf, a young cannon living a carefree smalltown life, appreciated by everyone around him. Then, on his 14th birthday, he is confronted with the more destructive side of being a cannon. He feels forced to leave his damaged friends behind, and go out into the world in search of an elegant solution to this devastating problem.

The film will be shown two more times at the NFF, on sunday the 26th and thursday the 30th of September, both times at 14:00.

We're still arranging to have a local premiere here in the north of the country, in Groningen, most probably somewhere in October. We'll keep you informed!

happy greetlings!
Naam, Martin Venema, Harry Arling, Peter Pankras, Marlon Regien
