Using around 3,000 still images, Andersen M Studio has animated an extract from Maurice Gee’s novel, Going West, for the New Zealand Book Council…

Colenso BBDO commissioned Andersen M Studio to create the stop-frame animation, which took around eight months to complete. The film was designed and animated by the studio’s Line Andersen (one of CR’s Creative Futures from 2006) and photographed by her brother, Martin, who set up Andersen M Studio in 2000.

“The entire film is handmade, using only 10A scalpel blades and paper,” explains Martin Andersen. “It was photographed on two SLR cameras and lit using Dedo lights.”

The film is currently showing as a cinema ad in New Zealand and has been released on DVD as part of a promotional pack for the upcoming film, Under the Mountain.

Design and animation: Line Andersen / Andersen M Studio. Photography and lighting: Martin Andersen / Andersen M Studio. Sound design: Mikkel H. Eriksen / Instrument Studio.
