Wolfsong

Here is is! My third year film, wolfsong!



Here is a film that I had the most difficulty working with.
It's a suspense thriller!

A mother wolf breaks into a hunter's den and takes back her cub, only to find it a motionless trophy. She sings a lullaby hoping that her cub will sleep. Little does she know that they are stalked by a young hunter back from the den.

A film that had way too many problems! Both story and animation related... It kind of shows sadly :( I hope I come to the 4th year more prepared.

  2. Toniko, you blew me away with this.
    It seems that you're on a verge to become a feature film director.

  3. Congrats!
    I really loved the way the film started - such an intriguing start to get thrown right in the thick of a story.
    A lot of the shots were reeeally beautiful and cinematic too.
    The main character needed a priority check though :D But he learnt his lesson in the end :)

    1. Thank you! Hmmmmm, I guess for this film i was really into ridley scott's cinematography and studied that specifically for this film. I think the first inspiration for the film movie wise was rambo first blood!

  6. Though you said their were problems with the film, it doesn't read at all in the story to me.

    You have the power to move an audience to tears with your storytelling, which is such a wonderful gift. I only hope that when I finish my schooling I will be able to tell stories as magically as you do.

    1. Thank you, but I am so happy I am done with this film. I'm going to go for a comedy next year because I'm not sure if this film even best represents me!

  8. The thing bringing me out of the story was the human character's motivation. His design was "nice guy", but he kept coming after the wolf to retrieve a stuffed trophy? Was the trophy especially meaningful that he had to run after a wolf through treacherous landscape to get it back?
    Loved, loved, loved the compositions and lighting. Are you co-oping this year?

    1. Pretty much. The trophy subtly served as a milestone for the boy's manhood, and an acceptance that he is now a hunter with his peers alongside him. Although the main point of the story was to show different perspectives of 'family', both representing the past (the wolf) and the future (the boy and his acceptance with his crowd). One represents the division of family, and the other is the unity of one. That's all I wanted to show really - as for the landscapes, thought it was cool. No logical reason, but I did try and choose landscape shape and location that represent the classic story arcs like the hero's journey.

      And I don't think I'll be anywhere this summer! ;)

  12. So sad movie..i cried...but really well done. Some of the scenes gave me flashbacks from beauty and the beast movie and the animation was really touching and well done!
