Glass Cannon are fired up in November
Glass Cannon have been very successful in achieving commissions this past month – more specifically, for corporate videos and things of that nature. One such job has been taken on for a York museum. “That actually came as a result of going for a commission with them, and not getting it,” says Glass Cannon’s co-director, Stewart Sparke. “It just goes to show the value of making connections, and showing your face, because in our experience, you’ll always get an opportunity at something else.”
Creatively, Glass Cannon are continuing work on their Three Living Three Dead’ animation (which should be ready for March next year), and they’re still working on getting the ‘Frostbite’ Proof Of Concept trailer ready to go. That should be finished on the Monday coming up. We had a great meeting about the script, which is too long at the moment for the actual feature film – that’s going to the second draft stage. Fingers crossed for that!”
So, what is ‘Frostbite’ then? Stewart enlightens us on the concept. “It’s a horror-adventure film. It started out as an old-school horror – it’s like a throwback to the movies of the 80s – like John Carpenter’s ’The Thing’ or Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’. All of these different elements have come in to make it a sort of romantic-mystery adventure film with horror elements in. It does have monsters in, and they are very original, we think anyway! They’re not what the story is about, it’s about the characters’ journey.
