the film

CLOWN Thrown Away will be an animated short film in Arteprima’s captivating storytelling style.
In an uncommon mix of cut-out and frame by frame animation, we will recreate Quentin’s unique lively watercolours and his signature page-turning elements.

Like a silent film, it will be accompanied by just a soundtrack, therefore speaking the universal language understood by all children: music.

Quentin agreed to work with us because of our extreme willingness and commitment to developing his distinctive and peculiar style: the ink, the colour, the paper and even the scratchy sound of the pen while drawing…

We are strongly convinced of the necessity of being faithful to the original narrative pace and timing, and this is not easy… The animated version of CLOWN will add new emotions to the book while depicting an already magnificently told story!
