It was announced today that the short film 'Christopher at Sea' will have its world premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival (August 31 – September 10). Coproduced by Psyop, Temple Carrington & Brown, and Miyu, the film is directed by award winning director Tom C J Brown and will compete in the Orizzonti Short Films Competition.
The film follows Christopher (James Potter) as he embarks on a transatlantic voyage as a passenger on a cargo ship. A chance encounter with Third Engineer Valentin (Andrew Isar) under moonlight waylays his hopes of finding out what lures so many men to sea and sets him on a journey into solitude, fantasy, and obsession.
“’Christopher at Sea’ is a queer operatic thriller set to the emotive music of Schubert’s 1823 song cycle ‘Die schöne Müllerin’ alongside contemporary music from Casey Spooner, Walt Disco, and the film’s composers Brian McOmber and Judith Berkson,” commented Brown. “Twenty minutes of sumptuous hand-drawn animation awaits the viewer, the combination of thousands of hours, years of love, and an incredible team of artists and collaborators bringing Christopher to life on open waters.”
“Tom is a singular film maker. ‘Christopher at Sea’ is a vision that could have only come from him and every frame is a piece of art. I am honored to have been part of the team that brought this project to life as part of Psyop’s ongoing investment in creatively led original projects,” said producer, Psyop, Amanda Miller.
“Christopher at Sea” is the second title of the 2022 short film slate for Psyop Originals, who earlier this year premiered “Bottle Cap,” directed by Marie Hyon and Marco Spier, at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.view more - Awards and Events
