All the elements were modelled in Maya, then transported into Pepakura to unwrap, print and fold and the majority of the props. Dragon Frame was used to capture all the stop motion animated elements with Canon 5d on 24, 35 and 50mm L-Series primes. All digital sequences were animated in Maya and rendered with Vray. Compositing and Editing in After Effects. Plugins used include Mocha Pro, EaseCopy, Immigration, pt_ShiftLayers and Keylight.
