Stick Man is a Collaboration between South African Triggerfish Studios and Magic Light Pictures and was Animated in Cape Town South Africa.
Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) voices Stick Man, with Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) as Santa and Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) as the narrator. Stick Man, which premiered on BBC One at Christmas 2015, is currently streaming on Showmax. Triggerfish’s second BBC One Christmas collaboration with Magic Light Pictures, Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes, will have its African premiere on 2 March 2017 at the Artscape in collaboration with Cape Town International Animation Festival and Design Indaba, less than a week after its international festival premiere as the opening night film at New York International Children’s Film Festival. It will also screen on 4 March 2017 at the Labia as part of the Cape Town International Animation Festival.
Coinciding with the one hundredth anniversary of Dahl’s birth, Revolting Rhymes combines the classic fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella, serving them with a mischievous twist. The two short films are directed by Jakob Schuh and Jan Lachauer, both former Annecy winners and Oscar nominees. Britain’s Daily Mirror called Revolting Rhymes“the best thing I watched all Christmas,” while The Guardian hailed it as “a treat.”
Triggerfish is currently underway on a third BBC One Christmas collaboration with Magic Light Pictures, The Highway Rat, another Donaldson/Scheffler adaptation
