VENICE, CA & HELSINKI, FINLAND - Mobile first entertainment company Seriously has premiered Best Fiends Boot Camp, the first original animated short from their Best Fiends franchise. The feature-quality animation was produced by Reel FX, the Dallas-based studio behind the feature film
The Book of Life.
“We have been fortunate to work with some of the best talent in the industry to create a fantastic, hilarious animated experience that further brings the world of Best Fiends to life beyond our first two mobile games,” says Andrew Stalbow, CEO and co-founder of Seriously. “Given the audience shift from incumbent media platforms, like televisions and movie theaters, we’re focused on building a world on your mobile, with the characters, stories and music you would expect from a Hollywood animated franchise.”
Best Fiends Boot Camp features a voice cast of Kate Walsh (13 Reasons Why, Grey’s Anatomy), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Pamela Adlon (Better Things, Californication), David Herman (Office Space), Billy West (Futurama) and Alan Oppenheimer (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, The NeverEnding Story). Boot Camp’s music is composed by Heitor Pereira (Despicable Me).
“When Seriously approached us about working together, I immediately fell in love with the characters,” says Augusto Schillaci, director and senior VFX supervisor at Reel FX. “It’s rare that you get a chance to work on a world that has so much potential for comedy, and it’s exciting to launch the short in a different way - straight into a global audience. We can’t wait for fans’ reactions to this.”
