Jackals & Fireflies
By Charlie Kaufman
New York City | 2022
Optical Animal checked one off the bucket list in having the chance to collaborate with and work alongside writer and director Charlie Kaufman on his short film project, Jackals & Fireflies
Optical Animal provided on set in-camera projection effects, animated content, and pre-production screen tests for several scenes in the film, some of which were shot at our studio in Brooklyn during the two-week summertime stretch of principle photography.
The film is an adaptation of a poem by Eva H.D. of the same name, as told through the strange, sweet, and singular lens of Kaufman.
The project was produced by Likely Story Films
and ArtClass Content
in partnership with Samsung.
