ABOUT "THE MARIONETTE"

The visual-based film explores the obsession of an artist with his craft, and the extents he would go to master it.

This is a Silent Film.
"Cinematography & Music will primarily drive the narrative forward."
MEET THE CHARACTERS
"Bonnie & Clyde". "Kirk & Spock". "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid", Every great duo in Cinema history starts with a great story and this is our attempt to tell Carlo & Lorenzini's story. We can't reveal much about them yet, but we promise it will be worth it.
WHY WE NEED THE FUNDING?
"Animation is one of the most expensive forms of filmmaking. Period."
Animation is a beast. No really. It is undoubtedly one of the most expensive forms of filmmaking. Period. Unlike the standard point and shoot films, animated movies start with a clean slate. They require so much manpower, resources, time, and money. Every frame needs to be rigged from the ground up. Every texture needs to be added, different backgrounds need to be illustrated. Trust us, we wish we can make this movie for nothing, but we just can't. (Mishal tried...)
A lot of work went into every shot. We want to give the film a very authentic and physical quality.
"We finished ALL the Pre-production work, including the storyboards."
