The Norm creator Michael Jantze‘s animation short “Mr. Lux: At Your Service” has been accepted into the Short Film Corner at this year’s Festival de Cannes.
“Mr. Lux: At Your Service” is a fast ride of traditional animation utilizing both pencil to paper animation and the latest in computer software. A new character from Jantze, Mr. Lux is only happy when he delivers five-star service to his hotel guests.
Jantzeâ??s script was brought to life by a story team consisting of himself, David Andrews and Kelly McNutt. Jantze created the layouts and designs as well as directed McNuttâ??s animation. Jory K. Prum provided the Sound Design and Jared Emerson-Johnson wrote and performed the Mancini-esque soundtrack. Nicole Jantze served as Executive Producer.
Michael and Nicole Jantze will be in the Short Film Corner at the Festival de Cannes May 19 â?? 21 to speak with interested buyers.
While Mr. Lux is Jantze Studios first production, he has produced others, including a 20 second animation for Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman’s Zits.
