Working with a photo-real, 3D-animated goldfish as the star of your indie film is no easy feat. Fort Lee, N.J., filmmaker Roger An spent years perfecting his hybrid computer-generated/live action short, using two home computers and a shoestring budget. A 3D animator by trade, Roger also wrote, directed, and acted in the 9-minute comedy. His efforts have paid off with 2018 season acceptances into 11 film festivals with screening locations across the U.S. and internationally, and more to be announced soon!
“Alpha Fish” is about a feisty pet goldfish named Rodrigo (voiced by Lou Mann) and his hapless owner, Conner (Roger An). Beautiful marine biologist Bianca (Amber Dickerson) enters the scene and changes everything.
The World Premiere of "Alpha Fish" was on Wednesday January 31, 2018 at 7 PM at the New Ohio Theatre located at 154 Christopher Street between Greenwich and Washington Streets in New York City.
