Een grimmige sfeer, prachtig uitgewerkt in een zeer knappe animatie “The Backwater Gospel”, een afstudeerproject van een paar Deense studenten.

“As long as anyone can remember, the coming of The Undertaker has meant the coming of death. Until one day the grim promise fails and tension builds as the God fearing townsfolk of Backwater wait for someone to die”

Dat er heel wat tijd in het filmpje gekropen is, is niet ondenkbaar. In de comments op Vimeo doet de auteur (een van de) kort z’n verhaal:

Spring 2009:
Via Last.FM I first got introduced to the bands Those Poor Bastards and Sons of Perdition. Being an old fan of bands like 16 Horsepower, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club and The Denver Gentlemen I naturally felt drawn to the gritty Western universe.

May 2009:
I liked the song “The Dust Storm” by Those Poor Bastards so much that I began toying around with the idea of making a fan music video for it. I wanted to try something I had had in mind for a while, namely the technique I used for the character above. vimeo.com/​4913136

Summer 2009:
I felt the result of my experiment had potential and as the time for pitches of bachelor project ideas was coming up at the school, I decided to see if I could make up a story for a film that would utilize the technique. The rough story beats of The Backwater Gospel started to take shape. I contacted Those Poor Bastards and Sons of Perdition and both we’re interested. The latter turned out to be a vital part of the production, writing music and doing voice acting, as well as consulting the story.

September 2009:
The project got chosen and the team was assembled.

June 18th, 2010:
Final deadline, the film was handed in.

Fall, 2010:
The sound was designed mainly in this period.

January 28, 2011:
Official premiere of all bachelor films in the cinema Fotorama in Viborg, Denmark (where the school also is located). A couple of weeks later the films were put online.
