CB Fest Premiere: ‘The Future’ by Greg Sharp

Where is humanity headed? No one knows for sure, but we’re taking a comical stab at the big question in today’s CB Fest premiere: The Future by Sydney, Australia-based Greg Sharp.

The animated short, which Sharp created using a “digital stop motion” technique, taps into mankind’s insecurity about the environment, famine, and climate change, in a way that’s cruel yet scarily satisfying. “I grew up in 1980’s New Zealand,” says Sharp, “and there was a lot of Greenpeace activism, talk of acid rain, Chernobyl, the Cold War, nuclear testing. I learned that the earth is doomed.”

The premiere of the film coincides with the launch of Sharp and Nina Knežević’s studio Truba Animation. Sharp will also remain a partner in the prolific Rubber House studio, while Truba will be focusing on animated series development and commercial work. The Future marks the company’s debut short.
