Planet Jump Productions joined forces with Axis Animation to work on a prologue for the latest Judge Dredd movie. This promotional film is in comic form and concentrates on the back-story of Ma-Ma as she rises from a street prostitute into one of the most powerful drug lords in Mega City 1.

The motion comic utilizes the storyline and artwork from the graphic novel which was written by Judge Dredd magazine editor Matt Smith and drawn by 2000 AD artist Henry Flint. Planet Jump Director Darren Wall restructured the content and broke up the imagery into layers to create a fluid sequence, giving life to the still images and thus immersing the viewer even deeper into the harrowing early life of Ma-Ma and the harsh world of Mega City 1.

Monica Laita created the lip-sync animation and animated the shadows with myself covering all the compositing, effects and finishing.
