In fuga dalla Casa della Follia

IMG_3160

Mary and Marsha in the Manor of Madness è il titolo del cortometraggio che vi presentiamo oggi, un divertente incontro tra il mondo di H.P.Lovecraft e le scene comiche alla Scooby-Doo.

Kris e Kurtis Theorin della Something’s Avry Production sono gli ideatori e realizzatori di questo originale video di appena tre minuti che mescola in modo molto simpatico due generi apparentemente distanti tra loro, con un mix di disegni a mano e tecniche 3D.

Buona visione!

 

IMG_3161Mary and Marsha in the Manor of Madness: this is the title of the short film drawn and animated by Kris and Kurtis Theorin from Something’s Avry production, mixing the horror of a lovecraftian world with the humour of a Scooby-Doo chase.

The video is almost three- minutes long and it blends hand-drawn art with 3D techniques.
