Clocking in at six minutes, “Prologue” describes an incident in the Spartan-Athenian wars of 2,400 years ago. In it, a small girl bears witness as warrior’s battle to death. The dialog-free project utilizes natural sounds to complement the intense animation entirely animated by Richard Williams himself. Williams - who is best known for his work as animation director on “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, his unfinished feature “The Thief and the Cobbler” and Academy Award-winning “A Christmas Carol “adaptation - has worked on the film for many years in between other projects. It was finally completed this year at the Aardman Studios in Bristol, U.K.
