“An Ordinary Seal” Short Film by Milford
Stockholm 3D animation specialists Milford just released their first venture into longer-form content, a rollicking inhouse film about the misadventures of “An Ordinary Seal”, written and directed by animation supervisor Antonio Deiana.
Antonio Deiana: “Seal is a project I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I wanted to try an exaggerated, cartoony style of animation normally found in 2D, but to do it full CGI. I have loads of other little stories about the seal and the other animals”.
Milford executive producer Johan Gustafsson: “To explore storytelling and production for longer formats is a dream we have at Milford. With ‘An Ordinary Seal’ we dipped our toes in the water of long-form production by telling a funny little story with a twist.
“This also allowed us to develop inhouse storytelling talent and hone our skills. Our ambition is to develop the concept further, perhaps a TV series for a young audience.”
