Andersen M Studio recently completed another darkly beautiful stop-frame animation on a literary theme. The Distant Hours promotes the new novel of the same name by Kate Morton, for PanMacmillan…

Late last year the studio produced an equally evocative animated sequence (an extract from Maurice Gee’s novel, Going West, for the New Zealand Book Council) that was included in a promotional pack for the film, Under the Mountain. You can see that on the CR Blog, here.

With the new piece, the Andersen’s meticulous paper cut-out world is subjected to the ravages of fire and earth. Spooky stuff.

Andersen M Studio is represented by Broadway Films for TV commercials.

Design and animation: Line Andersen/Andersen M Studio

Music and sound: Mikkel H. Eriksen/Instrument Studio
