It is with great pleasure that we finally present to you Plenty’s highly-anticipated Good Books film, We Need to Talk About Alice.
The award winning art & motion studio, represented by jelly London, created the energetic, colourful & contemporary animation as part of the Great Writers Series, a collection of short films to promote the concept of Good Books; a not-for-profit charity that supports Oxfam in ending poverty and injustice.
Commissioned and written by New Zealand based agency String Theory, the film features an edgy, “tatted up” Alice, a cannibal Hare, and a whole load of trippy-ness. The film’s release suitably falls in conjunction with the 150th Anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”
Over the past few years, each of the directors/studios have donated their spare time and skills - free of charge - to create the impressive promotional films for the charity, which are all based on well-known authors and books.
We Need to Talk About Alice was first premiered at an exclusive, invite-only event in Soho, London in September 2015 and received an overwhelming response. You can see the pictures here & watch the original trailer here.
