EXTRAORDINARY TALES
By Raul GARCIA
Inspired by the Masterpiece of Edgar Allan Poe
 
Genre - Animated feature - Approx. 67 min
Country - Luxembourg / USA / Spain / Belgium
Produced by Mélusine Productions (Stephan Roelants)

The Tales: • The fall of the house of Usher • The tell-tale heart • The facts in the case of Mr. Valdemar • The mask of the red death • The pit and the pendulum
With the Voices of: Sir Christopher Lee, Bela Lugosi, Julian Sands, Roger Corman, Guillermo del Toro

A feature film anthology composed of five stories of Edgar Allan Poe, each crafted in a graphic design style uniquely suited to the individual segments and inspired by visual artists and illustrators, whose style best expresses the psychological depth and complexity of Poe’s dark universe. The animation styles and techniques used for each segment vary with the graphic styles as we use textures, rendering techniques, colorization, and mixtures of 2D and 3D backgrounds with 3D animation to uniquely express the psychological adventures of Poe’s characters as they twist and turn in the darkest crevices of his tortured imagination.
 
FULL CONTACT

Full Contact is a contemporary tale of a man who accidentally bombed a school through a remotely operated drone plane. Ivan, operating the plane from a far away air force base, has never been to the foreign countries of his attacks, nor has he ever touched the plane he uses to kill. Modern warfare keeps him safe and disconnected from his prey. However, after this incident Ivan's disconnectedness starts to apply to everything in his life. He is unable to process his overwhelming feelings of guilt, but needs to open up to his new love Cindy. Only by facing his victims he can rediscover his humanity and find a new purpose in life.
