THE LAND BELOW - EXPERIMENTAL ANIMATED SHORT FILM (2017)
2,400 miles apart, with fabulous internet connection.
Starting in April of 2016, the first few pages to "The Land Below" were written and illustrated, and was only just a dream. The rest is history.
This experimental film has been completed in it's entirety through the power of the internet, showing that collaboration through pure like minded-passion can happen anywhere, anytime, and that you are your own limitation.

In 2017 after the release of the original short film, we wanted to re-imagine the world of The Land Below, and tell the real story we were not able to expand before. We grew our creative team, enriched the story, and revised many of the characters and world completely.
The pitch materials below were originally drafted for an animated television series adaptation.
Although after much of our own speculation on which platform this story may best represent and compliment the story, The Land Below may be crossed over for PC game development in the near future.
