Ben & Kat or Kat & Ben

Go To Little Lake Fountain

Cousins Kat and Ben go to Little Lake Fountain and along the way, meet some new friends.
This is our graduation film, and the debut film of Elizacholas. Together, we wrote and directed this film from July 2018 to March 2019. We wanted people to enjoy this film with laughs and smiles. Originally, we were going to make a sci-fi adventure with Ben and Kat - Ben gets ejected into space and Kat has to save him. Can you imagine? But ultimately, we felt the values of that story couldn't be told in the format of a (very) short film. We ended up wanting to tell a story about friendship and human interaction.
 
The fun part was when we wrote the story, we knew who would be playing the characters (our friends and loved ones). This influenced everything - from the script to the character designs to the animation - and it made the film truly enjoyable to work on everyday. We find that whoever sees it has a character they enjoy watching the most. This is our favorite way the film touches the audience.
