25 September, 2015 |    Gallery

The internet premiere was last month, but yesterday we had our real festival premiere on the Netherlands Film Festival, together with three other animation shorts.

DVD/BD/DC Mastering ready!

7 August, 2015 |  6  

Well that was the most epic deadline fight ever. Francesco and Sergey worked here all night to get the masters ready, quality demands (wrong gamma) required last night to make a complete new film export from the OpenEXRs and encode it all over. Looks even more great (and less dark) now! The guys left this […]
