Puppetworks was involved with delivering 13 mins/433 shots of photo realistic quality CGI feature film from Previs to final compositing. This entailed animation, render, and composite. The 7 month schedule was incredibly tight (some even said impossible) but we managed to finish the project on time. At the height of the project, the crew consisted of 140 artists from many different countries including Belgium, France, Germany, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Slovakia.
