Space Between Stars Film
Guru Studio is pleased to share with you the first trailer for its newest short film, Space Between Stars. Created by in-house artist Samuel W. Bradley, as part of our first official short film program, the film follows a group of ethereal creatures exploring a vast and unsettling derelict space station.
Inspired by Sam’s art, the studio assembled a team of artists, many of whom had worked together at Guru as part of the Oscar-nominated feature The Breadwinner. They built a custom pipeline that could seamlessly combine 2D and 3D artwork on screen.
Accompanying the film’s haunting visual aesthetic is a memorable score by composer Jim Guthrie known for his award-winning work in film, television and most recently video games. His game catalogue includes Sword & Sworcery (iOS, Steam), Soundshapes, (PS4), Planet Coaster (Steam), Reigns: Her Majesty (iOS and Steam), Grift Lands (Steam) and the highly anticipated Below (Xbox One).
Guru Studio’s short film program was created in 2016 with a goal to discover and develop new creators and directors and to support them on their storytelling journey. Space Between Stars was selected among dozens of pitches from across the studio and marks Samuel W. Bradley’s directorial debut.
