Trailer for our 18min animated movie now entering film festivals - Newsflash! 23 Jun 2012 won award at PHILAFILM - the Philadelphia International Film Festival.
When the equinox coincides with a solar eclipse, there is magic empowering ghosts to cross to the opposite side of the Earth. The Ghost of Carmen leaves her usual haunt of Seville, Spain to descend on Henderson, New Zealand for a night of grandly operatic horror and mayhem as she manipulates the people there into reenacting her own dramatic violent death. Logical and sensible businesswoman Victoria drives through Henderson playing "Carmen" on her car stereo and runs out of petrol. Her cellphone is out of credit. Boutique shopping center "The House of Seville" has its lights ablaze and looks welcoming. Don't go there, Victoria!

'DAZ/Poser' digital artwork software offers some interesting movie-making alternatives and possibilities eg operating like a virtual puppet theater. We explore and develop these by taking on the challenge of animating a drama with recognizably human characters in a contemporary setting. Four of us doing the animation over 2008-2011 have recorded 1000 person hours for about 1000 seconds of movie.
