Kickstarter Animation from Pakistan

The Glassworker
The Glassworker (شیشہ گر) is a film by Mano Animation Studios, directed by Usman Riaz. A coming-of-age story about two children from separate walks of life, set in the fictitious Waterfront Town. Vincent is an apprentice Glass Blower learning from his father in their Glass Shop. Alliz is a prodigious violinist striving to find her own unique voice on the instrument. The film will comment on the affects of war on children and follow both characters through their formative years as life gets more complicated and inhibits their friendship. Mano Animation Studios is Pakistan's first hand drawn animation studio. The team comprises of upcoming creatives from Pakistan and extends to Malaysia, Canada, South Africa, United States and the UK. Backed with $116,000 on Kickstarter, Mano Animation Studios has just released the first 10 minutes of their feature film. The short ‘Prelude’ is the opening of the full feature and is the first short hand-drawn animation to come from Pakistan. This includes a behind the scenes documentary following the making of the work. Release Date: End 2020.
