Well here we are award season contenders. After the long hours of cell animation, CGI model building, stop motion, texture painting, model casting, stereoscopic technique development, workflow headaches, convergence points, director arguments, transitions, skype calls, red bull, grading, rendering, pre-comps, exhaustion but so so much love it looks like we are beginning to be recognised. To be even mentioned with the likes of Brave, Wreck It Ralph, ParaNorman, Frankenweenie, Pirates, Rise of the Guardians, Le Tableau and the others is an amazing feeling.

Creative collaboration and the learning opportunities that were apart of this pioneering mixed animation project is leaving a wonderful legacy in the animation world. The film really is like something you have never seen before. Running ProjectChapman3D since the beginning of the project has enabled us to share our steps along the way. Sorry if they have been less frequent than one would like but sadly this has been done in the evening by a one or two people that really want to share our story.

Here we are being recognised as an Oscar contender. Wow. Being recognised on a global scale really is something none of us expected but are very much cherishing now.

Animation magazine over of the Oscar Contenders.
Indiewire think we have an outsiders chance of being one of the 5 to be nominated. Have a read down towards the end of the article.
