About the Project
Cashmere Sky is a retrofuture character-driven action/drama following two brothers, Arlo and Enzo, who both endure the hardships of coping with loss, finding courage, leadership, and acceptance. It is described as a retro-future world with “solarpunk” tones bringing together an exciting brew of airships, electricity, science, and a race of anthro cat-like people. Our heroes journey will take them from places like a science classroom to terrifying high speed train chases and airship battles. A main theme is the importance of family through challenging circumstances.
The project is heavily inspired by TV and feature film animation pulling from many twentieth century trends. The story is told with a whimsical nature while also having heavier and relatable themes to an older audience. The style and concepts are derived by many past inspirations including Fred Quimby, Chuck Jones, Preston Blair, and Hanna Barbera while moving to later inspirations such as Glen Keane, Don Bluth, and Bill Watterson.
