After years of following their commercial work from a distance, it’s great to be joined by the animation director team of Smith & Foulkes to discuss their first personal project, the Oscar nominated This Way Up.
This Way Up (2008)
A.T Shank & Son have a bad day at the parlour when a falling boulder ﬂattens their hearse. Emotional and literal pitfalls lie in wait for the odd couple as they make their way cross country with just a cofﬁn for company. This short animated caper puts the fun back into funeral as their journey and relationship unravel on an epic scale.
