Vancouver-Shot Animated Short Film Soggy Flakes Debuts On Telus Optik TV
Animated comedy directed by the award winning Affolter brothers focuses on downtrodden out of work breakfast cereal mascots who form a support group to help them deal with today’s gluten-free world
(Vancouver, BC-June 1, 2017) Soggy Flakes, the animated short film comedy and latest project from the award winning Affolter brothers, will make its debut on Telus Optik Local in late June 2017, following an online voting period on Storyhive.com June 5-9 to determine the grand prize winner of the Telus Storyhive Animation round!
Directed by the award winning Affolter brothers of Affolter Entertainment and winner of the Storyhive animated short film grant, Soggy Flakes tells the story of a group of washed-up, out-of-work breakfast mascots who form a weekly support group to help them deal with the reality of a low-carb, sugar-free and gluten-intolerant world. The chance arrival of Captain Kale, a sell-out ex-colleague at one of their meetings forces the group to re-evaluate what it means to be successful.
With an eclectic cast of animated characters such as Leon the Liger, Ms. Swheatie, and Dr. Bird Berry, Soggy Flakes is the latest stop-motion animated project from the Affolter brothers, following the highly popular Food Flix stop-motion animated web series. The stop-motion film boasts the considerable voice talents of Peter New (My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop), Cole Howard (The New Adventures of Peter Pan, Leo Award winner for Bob’s Broken Sleigh), April Cameron (Leo Award Nominee for The Philosophy of Phil) and David C. Jones as Captain Kale.
The Affolters have been the recipients of over 60 international awards or nominations including but not limited to: Leo Awards, Bilbao Web Fest, Heart of England Film Festival, Edmonton International Film Festival, Reel World Film Festival, International Film Festival of South Africa and San Francisco Web Festival.
