When a lonely young boy catches a mysterious goldfish while fishing on the lake, no one is prepared for what lies within. The boy’s troubled home life, leads to an emotion bond with the goldfish, based at least in part, on their similar circumstances. But when the goldfish starts doubling in size after every meal, the boy finds it increasingly difficult to keep his new friend a secret.
The film was shot over six days in and around north west London.
The post production took about 7 months of part time work. The animation of the Goldfish was done by Jason Snyman. Who has most recently been an Animator on James Cameron’s Avatar. All the animation for Goldie was done in 3dsmax and then composited in Shake.
