LOS ANGELES — Visualization studio The Third Floor has launched a new creative content collective called Story Attic. The website will feature original digital comics, illustrations, videos and short literature with science fiction and fantasy themes, designed to be quick views/reads between 3 to 10 minutes.
“At The Third Floor, we’re a regular contributor to high-profile films and shows for companies like Marvel, Lucasfilm and others,” says TTF’s Doug Lefler, who is spearheading the new initiative. “We have a pool of motivated artists, editors and illustrators who give 100% on their daily work but still find time to write, direct, draw, animate and edit on their own time. With Story Attic we encourage creative composition among our talent, with a platform to quickly showcase the concepts and work. The idea is simple; create a lot of content in formats that are accessible and let followers online tell us what deserves further development.”
Digital comics for Story Attic are presented in the Scrollon format, which was invented by Lefler — whose work as an animator and story artist harks back decades to films like The Little Mermaid — as a way to tell stories without borders or pages. Story writing is being done at The Third Floor, with illustrations by professional comic book artists like Chuck Wojtkiewicz, Anthony Winn and Moose Baumann. Video content is being produced through the company’s editorial department, headed by John Caldwell.
All Story Attic content is available free by visiting storyattic.com. The digital comics can also be read by downloading the Scrollon app for iOS.
