Flash Animated Theatrical Short Nears Completion
Director Richard Bazley is finishing up on a 7-minute theatrical short entitled THE JOURNAL OF EDWIN CARP, which was animated using Macromedia's Flash. Produced by Ray Bengston, the film is based on the book of the same name by Richard Haydn (voice of the caterpillar in Disney's original animated ALICE IN WONDERLAND). The short features the voice talents of British actor Hugh Laurie (STUART LITTLE, live-action 101 DALMATIONS). Richard Bazley was a lead animator at Disney and later at Warner Bros. on THE IRON GIANT. Recently he was the animation supervisor on the character Drix (David Hyde-Pierce) on OSMOSIS JONES. Bazley and Bengston plan to enter the short in various festivals and are working with several companies for further distribution and/or adaptations into other media.
