Schirkoa” will be one of the the first animated features to be developed in a game engine – Epic Games’ Unreal Engine a technology used in live action content “The Mandalorian” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story.
I have been steadily keeping up with the festival run of my film Schirkoa and the talks on the process. It’s been to 96 film festivals so far and still running well. The short film will be available on Vimeo on demand, Amazon on demand and iTunes next month.
I am now expanding the universe and writing a feature length version of the film. Good part : The pitch for the feature film has been selected as the finalist in the top Asian film market. Hope I get the funding and start the work on the feature length version!
