Animated Feature Film in the Works on the Big Island

Big Island-based animator G.B. Hajim is leading the production of an animated feature film, "strange frame: Love & Sax," which is being financed with the help of Act 221, Hawaii's High-Tech Business Investment Tax Credit.

Three animators and nine interns--all locals--have been hard at work on the film, a futuristic sci-fi story about fame's effect on love. Scissor Sisters and Dawn Richardson from 4Non Blondes are lending their musical talents to the project. The film is probably the largest animation project in Hawaii since "Final Fantasy." The target release date is sometime in 2009. Check out the trailer on YouTube.
