"When an overconfident bounty hunter captures a time-traveler on an alien planet,
she must team up with him to escape a murderous gang of bandits."
We grew up watching animated films and recreating action scenes in the backyard. Years later, not much has changed. Now working professionally as filmmakers, we have become fatigued by the increase of poorly-crafted CGI films that Hollywood hastily produces. After graduating film school, our team decided to return to a handcrafted aesthetic and make the film of our dreams. Every frame of Rawspace will be a hand-drawn, digital painting that pays homage to the legendary animators that inspired us.
As writers, we work to fight against harmful tropes and establish complex roles for people of all backgrounds. We also want to demonstrate that animation is not a genre, but a limitless art form that can be consumed by children as well as mature audiences. At its heart, our fun and fast-paced story is about two young people trying to survive in an ever-changing world, which is not an easy task when the world contains murderous bandits, time-travel, and man-eating beasts.
A “proof of concept” trailer has been animated using a process called rotoscoping - a technique using live-action reference footage. Next, our team will finish visual development and focus on funding and casting.
