Hi guys! Carolyn (the director for Canary 751) here! It’s been a crazy long time, hasn’t it? I wanted to bring you guys up to speed about what’s been going on with Canary 751, and Fiddlegriff Animation in general.
Last year was a tough year for me. My family suffered from multiple crises (deaths, hospitalizations, a whole can of worms), followed by a bit of depression on my part. It interrupted the preproduction on Canary 751, as well as the other projects on the slate. I’m kind of a private person in regards to that stuff, so I kept quiet about it. But that’s what’s up, and why things have been so dead over here.
But have no fear! 2015 is a new year! Here’s what’s on the agenda!
Canary 751 is still in production! Well, preproduction. My initial completion estimates were way off, and probably will be for a while. The film is currently planned to be 1 hour and 20 minutes, with 1 hour of the storyboards currently complete. We’re working quickly on it, but a feature film is a crazy amount of work, as you can guess!
Ruslan & Ludmilla
Fiddlegriff Animation is currently working on a short film called Ruslan and Ludmilla (accompanied, of course, by Glinka's overture). It's about two enemy princesses overcoming their differences and teaming up to fight monsters. It’ll be a fun romp!
The Dragon Prince
Fiddlegriff Animation has also been commissioned to complete a trailer for a project called The Dragon Prince. The trailer is currently about 30% complete. Go check out and support the project!

So that's what's going on on my end of things! I anticipate a lot of work getting done this year, and getting much closer to officially launching production for Canary 751. Stay tuned!
