The news was announced on Tuesday at the live presentation that took place in Hollywood. South African animation company Triggerfish, was responsible for co-producing Oscar-nominated short-form animation ‘Revolting Rhymes’ – a book based on Roald Dahl’s poems and interpretation of classic fairy tale stores.
CEO of Triggerfish Stuart Forrest joined Azania on the show to chat about the animation and the various contributors who played their part in conceptualising and creating the short animation film.
Forrest says that they had a long relationship with the London producers of Magic Light Pictures and have even collaborated with them on a few short films for BBC.
He adds that when Triggerfish was asked to produce the short films for ‘Revolting Rhymes’, they were thrilled because any Roald Dahl property is always wonderful to work on.
We were thrilled at the opportunity to work on something that for all of us is a childhood favourite.— Stuart Forrest, CEO of Triggerfish
Forrest adds that the production started in Berlin, then they took over soon after that. He adds that there were about 85 people working on the short film.
We did almost all of the lightening, composing and we put it all together at the end.— Stuart Forrest, CEO of Triggerfish
Forrest adds that says that being nominated for an Oscar is one of the highest accolades you can accomplish.
