ATELIER STUDIO:

The Atelier Academy Studio seeks to take traditional hand-drawn character animation (as well as other supportive forms of animation) to the next level. These are its objectives…

To be a breeding ground of technical innovation and artistic excellence in animated film production.

To develop and produce groundbreaking projects that are internationally popular and yet creatively original.

To create character animation talent and expertise that is second to none, pushing the boundaries of traditional animation to new and previously unimagined horizons.

To encourage the in-house origination of new story, production and technological ideas, as well as offer an online foundation course in traditional animation and production techniques.

Initial project objectives:

To create the first traditional, handcrafted feature film for 3D/IMAX screenings.

To next create a groundbreaking animated film in both traditional handcrafted character animation and evolutionary CG character animation for 3D/IMAX screenings.

To next create an equally groundbreaking animated feature film that aspires to produce stunning ‘walk-through’ experience for audiences... i.e. to actually feel part of the action within a painterly, realistic, handcrafted world.

Additional developments:

In addition to researching new and exciting ways to combine traditional animation skills with contemporary technology the Atelier Academy Studio has identified areas where existing technology can be advanced and improved for this new kind of break-through production. Here are just a few areas already identified…

New and better software to create traditional animation pencil tests.

Specific animation-based plug-ins for applications such as Adobe Photoshop and other related products.

Develop technologies that do not limit hand-drawn artwork to be just two dimensions… i.e. the ultimate objective is to create a walk-through entertainment experience where the audience can feel themselves within and part of the action!
