In the year 2000 we've been working on an animated version of "Treasure Island". It would have been a completly European project. It had a wonderful script by Furio & Giacomo Scarpelli. Furio is a master scriptwriter from Italy with hundreds of writing credits in his curriculum. With his son Giacomo he wrote the script of the Oscar winner "Il Postino". We had produced a great number of designs and completed three quarters of the animatic, but unfortunately around that time Disney released"Treasure Planet" and its disastrous showing at the box office signed the death sentence to our project. Here are some examples of our designs.
