Short Film: The Cats of Mars

Stålhammar created this modern children’s story in imitation of vintage fifties Saturday morning cartoons, complete with stylized art and a quirky, stock music score.

Stålhammar wrote the basic story The Cats on Mars in 2004. He then compiled music from the public domain from old commercials discovered in the Prelinger Archives.  He taught himself the gouache on cardboard techniques he used to create the short film's backgrounds using tutorials from John K.’s blog.

The short film was released at Göteborg International Film Festival 2010 before being released theatrically across Sweden.
