GUILLERMO DEL TORO’s THE STRAIN

Aug 14 –

 

Planet Jump has had the great pleasure to work once more with Axis Animation, on the latest Guillermo del Toro horror fest – The Strain, which was co-created with Chuck Hogan.

 

“The Survivor” takes place in the harsh wintry landscape of Romania in 1897, and follows a doomed troop of hunters in search of a fabled wolf. Unfortunately they find something far more deadly lurking in the deep wood.

 

This film serves as a brief backstory to the events which play out in the TV series and also introduces one of the principle characters – Abraham Setrakian, played by David Bradley (Filch from the Harry Potter series), who also voiced the character in the animated promo.

 

The TV show has already aired in the U.S. on FX Channel and is scheduled for its U.K. premier on 17th September on WATCH.

The sequence, Misha’s story, follows the life of a young boy in the Ukraine whose difficult early life is transformed by the educational opportunities provided by the organisation, and Misha’s personal appearance at the end of the film was the highlight of the annual ORT dinner in October in recognition of the charity’s achievements throughout the year.
