ROBERT MORGAN – The Cat with Hands

Last night as I slumbered I had a strange dream,
One that seemed to bring distant friends near.
I dreamt of the faces of people I loved,
And I awoke with an ‘eart full of cheer.
And I awoke with an ‘eart full of cheer.

ROBERT MORGAN: The Cat with Hands - MPEG-4 clip
Once upon a time there was a cat, who lived in a bottomless well. The cat wanted to become human. So, he needs to exchange some parts…

Robert Morgan, the author, director and animator, says: “My older sister had a recurring nightmare when she was a little girl. In the dream, a cat with human hands chased her and some friends around a graveyard. When it touched them, with those hands, the girls turned into spastics… I stole the idea, re-wrote the story and made a short film out of it.” (Source: Love Film)

The short movie is realized using tradional animation, without any digital help. The realization took over one year.

Eyal Saphir, the associate producer, says: “The slowness of the manufacturing process is explained by the absence of enough budget for animation, and the ideas of Rob Morgan were very ambitious. We did not want to compromise the project for financial reasons, then we took time that it was necessary…” (Source: R.A.DI.)

C’era una volta un gatto che viveva in un pozzo senza fondo. Il gatto voleva diventare umano. Per cui, aveva bisogno di scambiare alcune parti del corpo…

Robert Morgan, l’autore, regista ed animatore, dice: “Mia sorella maggiore aveva un incubo ricorrente, da bambina. Nel sogno, un gatto con mani umane rincorreva lei e delle sue amiche in un cimitero. Quando le toccava, con quelle mani, le ragazze diventavano spastiche… Ho rubato l’idea, riscritto la storia e ne ho fatto un cortometraggio”. (Fonte: Love Film)

Il corto e’ stato realizzato usando tecniche tradizionali, senza alcun ausilio digitale. Il processo ha richiesto piu’ di un anno.

Eyal Saphir, il produttore associato, dice: “La lentezza del processo produttivo e’ spiegata dalla mancanza di un budget adeguato all’animazione, e le idee di Rob Morgan erano molto ambizione. Non volevamo compromettere il progetto per ragioni economiche, percio’ abbiamo preso il tempo necessario…” (Fonte: R.A.DI.)

    I have heard that Animagic Studios has been producing some really amazing animations. They have worked with many fortune companies and smaller companies. Keep on eye on them as they are creating some really amazing TV spots as well as 3D animated TV series. Rumor has it that a 3D animated motion picture is in the works too.
