Rocket The Reindeer and Friends Get Stereoscopic 3D Animation
Press Release from Rocket Enterprises
Creator of Rocket, Melanie Hurley from Rocket Enterprises commissioned earlier in the year a team to bring this loveable Reindeer and his friends to the screen.
Hurley is extremely excited about creating her first fully animated short film in 3D, and believes that Rocket is going to be a very exciting brand and certainly will have worldwide appeal to a wide audience.
The story is based in Rocketland and is all about Rocket who has lost one of his Antlers so is unable to fly with Santa on Christmas Eve. Usually the fastest and always at the front poor Rocket is only able to go around in circles until his antler grows back.
Not one to give up easily Rocket asks his best friend The Cheeky Snowman for help and together they go in search to find the Wishfairy who they know has all the magical powers to make his antler grow back.
On their journey The Cheeky snowman, who is always up to mischief, hides from Rocket and starts throwing snowballs when no one is looking.
A bit further down the path the playful Elves ‘Pip and Pop’ are in Santa’s workshop and are very busy decorating trees and wrapping up all the toys.
Finally reaching The Wishfairy’s magical castle Rocket may finally be able to get his antler back in time to fly with Santa that night with the help of the Fairy and her magical bag of sparkly dust, but watch out for that very cheeky snowman as he has other ideas about what do with that bag of magical sprinkles!!
A fantastic seasonal short film, packed full of colourful 3D moments, and something to go and enjoy getting you in the mood to kick of the Christmas spirit.
The film has been created to suit families of all ages.
Time: 15 minutes with narration
The story has been written by acclaimed writer Oliver Caporn, and co-produced by Hurley and Tony Nottage.
Hurley is also delighted to have Director Richard Bazley on board who heads up the animation for the film. For the past decade Bazley has worked as a Supervising Animator at three of the Major Animation Studios, Sullivan Bluth Studios, Walt Disney Feature Animation and Warner Bros. Projects worked on include Roger Rabbit and Hercules.
Branding opportunities follow in 2010 with plans already in the wing to create a sequel, a costume character, publish the story, make a short film for TV and print pyjamas and pencil cases for Christmas 2010!
