ABOUT THIS PROJECT
For Spacesheep, the work and talent of Péah are unanimously a huge breath of fresh air which raises the deep desire to highlight his world. Made partly under his direction this project is a small exercise in style that allowed us to enjoy integrated 3d animation in live action shots. For sure Smokey Town is a far richer and more ambitious project that undoubtedly deserves a good film or television adaptation.

1. Case Study
Our first intention was only to create small imaginary characters in volume, and it tooks a greater scale when we decided to intagrate them into a specific environment more representative of their universe.
Finally the animation work was presented as obvious for the purpose of this exercise of style. We then took the liberty of interpreting the environment with live action shots.
In full autoproduction and having only the requirements of our ambition, this little film appears rather like a research, our work concentrates rather on 3d and behavioral approach of the characters in their environment.
Our approach ultimately being oriented towards a visual quality of embedded characters, our manufacturing process also required a more sophisticated implementation with 3D elements. So without completely disregarding Péah's universe, we briefly developed the sets and other useful accessories to enrich the character's environment.
