Next original animated short from the ‘Best Fiends’ mobile game franchise produced by ‘Book of Life’ creators Reel FX features all-star voice cast including Pamela Adlon, Mark Hamill and Kate Walsh.
DALLAS, TX -- Helsinki, Finland-based mobile entertainment company Seriously has teamed up with Golden-Globe nominated studio Reel FX once again to launch a second original animated short from their Best Fiends franchise. Visit Minutia comes on the heels of the vast success of their debut short, Boot Camp, which took in over 6.4 million views and boosted profits for Seriously in the months following the launch.
Reel FX director Augusto Schillaci helmed the short, bringing his feature film background, including Reel FX’s Free Birds and The Book of Life, and his visually-driven storytelling aesthetic to the table to deliver a feature level short to Best Fiends’ active tribe of two million daily players.
Best Fiends Visit Minutia features an all-star voice cast of Pamela Adlon (Better Things, Californication), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), David Herman (Office Space), Maurice LaMarche (Futurama, Zootopia, Kate Walsh (13 Reasons Why, Grey’s Anatomy) and Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars, Batman).
The 3D animated comedic short takes viewers through the island of Minutia, the land of sun and fun, and follows the vacation follies of JoJo, Howie, Temper, Gordon and friends. Every attempt at relaxation and adventure is quickly thwarted by the hordes of slugs at every turn, packing the beaches, invading the buffet and generally spoiling any moment of leisure.
A specially created Visit Minutia event will also be available for players in the Best Fiends app, so that fans can both watch the animation and play their way through in-game content in the same style that extends the experience.
With the launch and success of their own original animated shorts, Seriously is broadening the Best Fiends franchise beyond mobile gaming and partnering with award-winning partners such as Reel FX to position the company as an entertainment brand on the rise. Additional shorts are slated to be released throughout the year, complemented with new in-game content.
