Cineplex Does it Again with "A Balloon For Ben"
Staff Writer By: Nick Sorbin (nickcharles)
In a previous article, I had shared a wonderful seasonal short film from 2015, Lily & the Snowman, which was created for Canadian entertainment company, Cineplex. Well, just days ago, Cineplex introduced their promotional short film for this year's holiday season, A Balloon for Ben. And, as with the previous film, they've delivered us another powerfully emotional, cinematic ride.
A Ballon for Ben is every bit as beautifully written and animated as Lily & the Snowman, and includes another stellar and emotive arrangement of a hit song for its soundtrack. This time, using Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere. Enjoy, but keep the tissues close!
Check out the following featurette about the making of the film, including comment from Maxine Chapman of Cineplex, Director Yves Geleyn from Hornet, inc., and the story's writer, Nick Doerr.
