TEASER ANIMATIC - work-in-progress
It is virtually impossible to distill an entire feature-length movie into a 2-minute teaser - especially a movie that has such depth and range of styles and timescales as 'Spirit of the Game' does. However, we hope the teaser work-in-progress below will give you just a hint of both the reality and the magic that this hand-crafted film will bring to its audience - as well as underline the socially-real themes we are tackling in this aspect of the film. As you will see, this teaser is not yet finished, although we do believe it is good enough to share. And of course, there's a great deal more yet to come!
The DRAWASSIC studio wishes to thank all the following artists, colleagues and contributors who have donated their time and talents in helping us make this promotional animated teaser. (With particular thanks to Robert Dancik of ToonBoom Animation Inc. for generously supplying us with "ToonBoom HARMONY" to work with!) We would also thank all those individuals and/or companies in the future who will donate their time, talent or funding to us. In return we can only promise that we'll give everything we have to make 'Spirit of the Game' an acclaimed animated 'classic' that all will be justly proud of!
