ATK PLN Highlights the Best of Arlington, TX with Charming Animated Short
The animated short film centers around a family hailing from the town of “Blandville.” True to its name, the town offers little in the way of excitement or entertainment, unveiled by a series of vignettes of failed attempts at fun: a young sister and brother solemnly idle away an afternoon in their driveway, their mother attempts to sell homemade craft brews at a local outlet with no success, and their father’s new recipe attempt literally goes up in smoke. By happy chance, the daughter comes across a flyer for Arlington, and her family’s life in Blandville transitions into an exciting metropolitan vacation. From zealous sports stadiums and picturesque theme parks to tender family moments at a restaurant, ATK PLN’s animation seamlessly transitions from one scene to the next, accentuating the gift of memorable experiences which Arlington strives to share with its visitors.
In addition to directing the animation for the short, Lewis also composed the original score. His background in delivering these dual disciplines shines through in this piece, heightening the cinematic quality with a cohesive fusion of narrative and soundtrack. This boutique approach, fused with the infrastructure of ATK PLN’s sister company, Golden Globe-nominated animation studio Reel FX, allows the shop to deliver brand clients a feature film-quality production with a hands-on, collaborative experience.
Notes Lewis, “Arlington truly is a world of wonderful. It’s an unexpected playground of spontaneity and excitement, and for the Wonderfuls family it provides a weekend of fun away from life’s obligations. We wanted a story that doesn’t tell you the story but SHOWS you the magic of Arlington.”
