Animated film of Quentin Blake's 'Clown' in development

Tuesday 27th September 2016

Arteprima, an independent design studio based in Genoa, Italy, are working on bringing Quentin's much-loved 'Clown' to the screen as a 12-minute animated film.  Based very closely on Quentin's original line and watercolour drawings, the film will, like the book, tell the story of Clown's adventures without using words.  Additional atmosphere will be added by a newly-commissioned soundtrack.
