Production Notes:


Puppet animation. Shot and produced in 3D.

The first 3D Stop motion animated film that is also computer generated. Twenty seven major characters had their faces "built" in a computer. Through computer modeling, it was easy to manipulate the characters faces for expressions and speaking. Once created, each pose was then outputed to a 3D printer. The 3D printers build up each character's face by depositing hundreds of layers of fine white plaster-vinyl powder, which is then sprayed with ink. Over 31,000 parts were created this way... each thirty seconds would require almost 300 faces per character.

Stop-motion Animation.
