The House that Jack Built (or is trying to...)

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Set Design for Screen at Wimbledon College of Arts student Jack Pratt has successfully launched a crowd funding exercise for a Mortal Engines Animation Project.

Here's his pitch:

My name is Jack Pratt and I am a third year student studying BA (Hons) Set Design for Screen at Wimbledon College of Arts.

At Wimbledon I study all aspects of the artistic process that goes into the creation of projects for the screen, such as film, tv, music videos etc. and, in my final year, I have the opportunity to bring that all together into one, large project. For this, I have chosen to adapt 'Mortal Engines' by Philip Reeve into a short stop motion animation teaser trailer.

'Mortal Engines' is set in a dystopian future, in the aftermath of a nuclear war that as devastated the earth. Cities move around on gigantic tracks and airships roam the skies. The story follows a young boy named Tom Natsworthy, who lives aboard the traction city of London, and Hester Shaw, a girl from the 'out-country' seeking revenge for the death of her family.

Check out the whole pitch.

Here's the animation so far:

Let's hope Jack delivers!
