Video: Norwegian Film SHHH! by Jason

Here are 2 clips from the new film SHHH! based upon the work of Norwegian cartoonist Jason.

More at the SHHH! site:

Here you will find news, preview stills and trailers from our animated short film Shhh! which is currently in production.

The film is based on the award winning Norwegian cartoon artist Jason’s (aka John Arne Sæterøy) graphic novel with the same title, or more precisely the first part of the book.

Shhh! is produced by Hans Bastian Borg at Graceland Film Company AS and directed by Robert Næss (that’s me). Animation is done by Lyder Janøy and Aasmund Janøy at Animidas animation studio – both companies based in Oslo, Norway. The production is financed by The Norwegian Film Institute.

This is the first I've heard of the project. The clips are moody and draw me into what seems like a spooky, accurate portrait of Jason's world. I hope the film gets to be seen in the US.
