Production Notes:

Originally released at the Annecy Film Festival.

Luis Cook on making the film: "I knew I wanted to mix 3d cgi with 2d somehow. Rough it up a bit. So we animated everything in the computer with cg models then printed the frames out and worked over them in 2d. Filling in the details and expressions and scanning it all back in over the 3d. This also meant we could get fills, shadows and textures from the 3d and get all the 2d looseness. It also meant the characters could interact with 3d objects. So hopefully the whole film is integrated even though we have used lots of techniques. The 3d also gave the characters a sense of reality, weight and volume which I thought important to the narrative. To hold it all together aesthetically I did a fully rendered design for all of the 180 shots – so we all knew, cg, 2d, comp, where we were headed. The backgrounds were taken from the Photoshop layers as were all the textures placed on the models – it reduced the amount of discussion. Confused? So were we, but blundered our way in and we found shortcuts along the way."
