A Short “PIXAR” inspired short film about a lonley star wondering the lonely cosmos
CAST AND CREW
BEHIND THE SCENES
Writing the script I set myself a few goals
1) Tell a fun but deep story about something that isn’t human
2) Tell a story under 4 Minutes
3) Tell a story in a unique art style
After these restrictions it didn't take me too long to realise a fully fledged story starring a star
Inspired by pixar shorts we dive deep into our first hand drawn animation short about a little star exploring the lonley depth of space.
There’s something absolutely magic with the storytelling in the Pixar/Disney shorts and I was so motivated and inspired by these shorts that I wanted to try and do something similar in that aspect and of course because we weren’t allowed to physically go film anything during lockdown I thought it was the perfect time to start writing it.
Storyboards for "COSMO" was an essential tool for visualizing and planning out this project, particularly in the fields of animation. They allow us to map out the structure and flow of your story, as well as experiment with different shot compositions and camera movements.
Creating this storyboard was a valuable investment of our time and effort that paid off in the long run as as-soon as we were finished with the look and design of the film we were ready to start instantly with barley any changes other than an added scene with the dinosaur.
After writing this film I needed an artist that was talented enough to bring their unique art style to the film but also someone that I could direct to see my vision on screen. fahsangoldenfish was the perfect choice to help create this film with me. She’s the most dedicated, hard working and most perfect person I could of picked to Co direct and Co create this film with me. Not only did she do exactly what I needed for the film but she put her own spin on it which worked better than anything I could of created myself and of course a huge thank you to nerodoesstuff who is helped us with all the VFX effects - another incredible artist who jumped on this project to help.

Alan mixed the score for COSMO
This film stopped over the limits quiet a few times with amazing people that helped us, for the music not only did we get Marvels Devise Sodha to help us we also hired a 59 piece orcastra to score the film. The same orchestra that has scored legendary IPs like Starwars, Disney’s Zootopia and elder scrolls. We called the Budapest scoring orchestra at 10am in the morning and listened to them scoring our film live on zoom. This not only allowed us to listen to their magic on screen but also to give them direction.
This score ended up being the perfect music for this film.
This is the music from COSMO
