The bottom line is; there are a lot of film makers out there making films with no money, and it is becoming harder and harder to find funding as film making becomes more accessible to the masses. The best solution whilst you are establishing yourself is to find people to team up with. But what does collaborating really mean?
Our multi-award winning stop-MOTION animation, The Hunting of the Snark, is now available to watch for free on Amazon for Prime Subscribers!
The film finished post production in April 2015, and went to the Marché du Film at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2015, where it was well received. Since then, it has made the official selection of 10 international film festivals, including three comic cons, and has also been selected for Toronto Film Week in September 2016, which runs alongside the Toronto Film Festival. It has also picked up six awards during its time on the festival circuit.
The Hunting of the Snark has been selected for The New Animation & Cartoon Film & Script Festival in West Hollywood which starts on May 24th
From the 3rd Story Productions is excited to announce the
launch of The Hunting of the Snark, a stop-motion animation based on Lewis
Carroll s final poem of the same name that was debuted in Cannes last year and
has gone on to pick up awards at festivals since.
From the 3rd Story Productions believe the film is in the vein of the original poem,
having kept the original dialogue whilst the director added her own, touches of
nonsense to Carroll s classic story. All this was brought to life with the aid of a
group of great actors which included Joerg Stadler (Saving Private Ryan), who
played the Bellman that was leading this group of strangers on their hunt.
In spite of its success, the film has had a rather low key launch so far, only
being made available on VOD, and a self-distributed DVD, with many
territories and formats still available to distributors, but find how to watch
