The Making of Tremor...: An Animated Short Film

Miranda K. Spigener-Sapon

"Tremor" is an Independent Animated Short Film written/directed by Grayson Arndt and Produced by Bonfire Cinema, A Noirtainment Company. The film brings together the work of over 20 different Animators all across the country. This art-book showcases the making of this film.


Our story follows a young girl who lives a perfect and simple life until an Earthquake rips her home and family apart. While the Earthquake comes and goes for those around her, Emily is haunted by its tremors and forced to run from the life she once knew.


Perhaps the most special part of this story is how our many talented animators have decided to tell it. The Story unfolds through SIX scenes each with their own unique and finely-tuned styles.


We wanted to showcase all of the incredible and unique perspectives that each animator brings to the table, supporting the vision of our artists and intertwining them into a fluid and compelling story.
