Francis Ford Coppola’s proposed feature-length project interwove Carlo Collodi’s classic fairy tale (to be realised in an array of European-style animation), with a contemporary story (shot in live-action) of a group of refugee children being lead to rescue through a ravaged, war-torn landscape.
The concept drawings and animatic storyboard were part of development work by Passion Pictures, a leading film and commercials company.
The storyboard visualizes a 5-minute live-action sequence to be bookended by scenes in animation.
Screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola.
Music for animatic by Simon Lambros.
