Cooking up a Storm!

by Linzy 31st Dec 2009 | 42 comments

So who amongst you has heard the rumour about the ‘Storm’ animation? The good news is that it’s all true and it’s due out sometime next year (or sometime this year if you’re reading this in 2010; look at you being in the future).

The movie’s production blog has now gone live in the lead up to the release; it’ll feature character designs, concept sketches, inspiration for the film, time-lapsed videos of artwork being created and more, posted by the team responsible for this ace project! It’ll be updated frequently, exclusively, and maybe even by Tim.

For all the latest goings on I suggest you keep your beady eyes on [this], follow the [Twitter feed], become a fan on [Facebook] or maybe do all three!

To get a taster for it, the trailer is now live!

I became a Tim fan after watching him on Conan OBrien!! LOVE “Storm” and can’t wait to see the animated version! I want him to come to Michigan and perform this summer MINCHIN for MICHIGAN!!!!!

Is this still going to be released? I’ve heard nothing about it but can’t wait for it!

Ha Ha! I got to see it at TAM London! Didn’t have a ticket, and stood outside the door holding up a sign. After I got one, they left the doors open, and didn’t even check tickets. Can you believe that?

Anyway, it’s awesome and totally measures up to the poem. you’ll not be disappointed.

I’d kill a Christian, a puppy, and a hot slutty goth chick to see Tim do a dark side duet with Peter Murphy.

I can’t wait for the crew to release the Storm animation. I wonder when it’ll make it’s round of film festivals so it can be publicly released?

Josh on 2nd of October 2010

The animation is probably the best I’ve seen anywhere, and the content is very cool :D How long will this be?? Being so interesting, having it twenty minutes long would probably annoy me and leave me wanting more XD

News. I want news (please). When is the video going to be released?

Is it the Storm that has but one eye?
Am I missing the self -aware hypocrisy?
If I were to have a proper-gander at this seemingly tendentious piece
Would I feel less inclined to leap to the aid of she of the annoying voice and poorly conceived argument?

Was wondering if Tim ever reads Terry Prachett. Storm reminded me of one of the last conversations between Death and Susan in Hogfather.

“Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know, that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom.”

Keiron & Sigi on 25th of February 2010

Wonderful. The art work is incredible also. My son is doing a NSW Year 12 HSC English assessment and has chosen ‘Storm’ as his extra text. We are great fans – ages 57 and 17 so you appeal to all ages! Have bought all your DVD’s and are so happy you have succeeded. Thanks for the laughs and good luck with everything you do.

Look’s absolutely wonderful.

Cannot wait to see it, I wonder if there will be a download-able version for my iPod Touch/iPhone?

Or will it just be youtube?

Sorry – I like tim’s stuff a lot but am clearly not cool enough to have any idea what this is about. Any enlightenment available?

Eathan Sveinson on 2nd of January 2010

this is the song that made me truly addicted to minchin! in fact new years day i was reading a book on how homeopathy works at a friends place and couldn’t stop gut laughing when i remembered this song. so needless to say i can’t wait till this animation is out!!

Monicaca on 1st of January 2010

I honestly can’t decide if this is a joke but as I consider Storm one of the faves and testament to the Minchin genius, lets see. Hope it is true.
