Hunting of the Snark student film, narrated by Christopher Lee

Michael sez, "The Hunting of the Snark is a student short film narrated by Sir Christopher Lee and based on the Lewis Carroll poem of the same name. The film features a bizarre crew on a dangerous adventure to find a mysterious creature called a Snark. The movie was shot using partial sets against greenscreen and features over 150 vfx shots including cg creatures and oceans! The vfx are all being done by a small team at a DIY vfx studio that I built from the ground up! Pledge $5 to the film's Kickstarter campaign and get a DRM-free digital download of the film and a making of documentary!"

The visual effects for the film are already well underway, but in order to get them finished we need your help to bring on a small team of professional visual effects artists. These artists will help to simulate vast computer generated oceans and make our creatures look as real as possible. In addition to helping with the visual effects, funding you provide will also be used to complete the sound and color correction for the movie.

    Sir Christopher Lee was not available for my student films.  Neither was Dame CGI VFX.  :^(

    But what the hell, I’ll toss in $5.  Looks like good fun.

    There was an amazing version of Hunting of the Snark with original music by Mike Batt some years ago. 

    Cast was amazing – Narrated by Sir John Gielgood and John hurt, it starred Roger Daltry, Art Garfunkel, Julian Lennon, Denise Williams and even had George Harrison and Stephane Grapelli joining the London Symphony Orchestra. Well worth checking out if you’re a Carroll fan.

  5. That’s great! The little bit at the beginning was inspired by Wes Anderson’s Amex commercial: http://youtu.be/rbO3BS0Uzm0

    And they acknowledge the inspiration by having the Amex commercial on the monitor behind the Macbook!

    In case anyone was not aware.

    Needs more acting.

    Great costuming, though.
