Mark Osborne's animated short film, "MORE," has won the Jury Award for Special Recognition for Short Filmmaking at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. The 6-minute film, about an inventor's struggle to find meaning in a grey emotion-less world, is the world's first stop motion short produced for exhibition on 70mm/15 perf (IMAX). "MORE" is inspired by and features the instrumental song "Elegia" by British electronic pop group New Order. Simultaneously in Park City, "HERD," a film which Mark Osborne co-produced, won the Spirit Award for Short Film at the Slamdance Film Festival.
The February issue of Animation World Magazine has an article by Mark Osborne about the making of "MORE" called "Making More Out of Stop Motion on the Giant Screen." Read it today!
