We are proud to announce that Sun Creature's debut feature film "FLEE," which they've been working on since 2015, is among 56 films chosen for the prestigious Cannes Film Festival Official Selection! It is 1 of only 4 animated films selected, including Pixar's and Ghibli's latest features. Though unprecedented circumstances have forced the festival to cancel the event, Cannes will be supporting the feature film with its prestigious label and by following it during its festival run and theatrical release. "FLEE" tells the true story about a man's need to confront his past in order to truly have a future. The main character Amin arrived as an unaccompanied minor in Denmark from Afghanistan. Today, at 26, he is a successful academic and is getting married to his long-time boyfriend. A secret he has been hiding for over 20 years threatens to ruin the life he has built for himself. For the first time he shares his story with a close friend. The film is produced by Final Cut for Real and Sun Creature, in co-production with Vivement Lundi !, Mer film and Most film as well as with the financial support of other partners, including Ryot Films and Vice Studios, The Film Institute in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, Arte France and many more.

Join us for another Psyop Awesomeness Series this Friday with author and illustrator Selina Alko. Selina will be discussing 'The Case for Loving,' a true story of the Loving family who sued the state of Virgina in 1967 to legalize inter-racial marriage. This Friday, June 12th, marks the anniversary of this landmark victory and is officially deemed Loving Day.

Selina has tackled a variety of historic, civil rights, and social justice subjects in her books and can speak to the process of distilling content into effective storytelling with accompanying artwork. She collaborated with her husband Sean Qualls on the art for this book and several others.

Sun Creature just made a lovely new piece for Optus, with a Japanese anime style reminiscent of Travel Oregon, and Shots wrote up a review. Check it out!

For this project, Sun Creature worked with Bear Meets Eagle on Fire, a newly opened creative studio and agency based in Sydney.

Guillaume Dousse co-directed this project with french director and former Pixar animator, Louis Clichy, whose affinity for character driven stories wonderfully complimented Dousse's experience from working on the Travel Oregon films. They produced it in only 7 weeks time!

For more on the film, check out the project page here: http://www.psyop.com/project/optus

Between is an exploration of entanglement between the human body, and the space that surrounds it. Figures are suspended in a state between solid sculpture, and fluid fabric. The immersive space showcases several moving compositions, each uniquely evolving between states of familiarity and abstraction.
