What Cassandra Saw has been kindly invited by IMDb to have a title page, which we are both really pleased about. Ian Lumsden, continual champion of Littlenobody, has done us the honour of adding a review via the user comment section.
“A fantasy mix of animation and live action as strange occurrences disturb the sleep, 10/10 – Karen Penman and Liam Brazier are the creators of Littlenobody that officially became a collective in March of 2007. I first noticed their music video “Thou Shalt Always Kill” when I previewed the weekend’s BAF07. It was most professionally done. I was therefore impressed to discover it was produced by a fledgling studio. Also surprising is the diversity of work produced in a short period of time.
“What Cassandra Saw” was their first animated short intended as a showcase – they work in animation, visuals, graphic and web design. In fact the web link is to the first episode of three and most fascinating it is too. Look at the screen shot above and note the odd shadow: surely that’s a cat! Karen plays the lead character in a “lullaby” about shadow. We are given dictionary definitions and the narrator explains the organisation that governs shadows, in particular the Triplets running the Departments of Making, Mending and Resizing. Lately, we are told, mishaps have been happening. All this takes place in the dark hours when the young woman climbs into bed and has a strangely fragmented night’s sleep……………………..
