1. As part of Blue Zoo's long-running animated short films programme, a brief was sent out to everyone in the studio to pitch an idea to tell an emotional, human story, while experimenting with the physical optics of projecting CG animation.

    Blue Zoo Animation Director Ben Steer pitched the idea of Mamoon, which proceeded to win the company-wide studio vote, and went into production.

    Over the next year, he directed, filmed and collaborated with other artists to make this beautiful short.

    You can watch Ben talk through how the film was made, in the making-of film:

    Director: Ben Steer
    Original Music: Matthew Wilcock for Zelig Sound
    Animation: Phil Brooks, Ben Steer
    Additional Animation: Ricky Honmong, Sarah Caisley, Simon Taylor, Steve Kimbrey

  2. We are very proud to finally release our Tribute to the 1995 animated Ghost in the Shell short movie. This project started more than two years ago and was very difficult to produce.
    It is interestingly enough to know that everything was created with the help of only three computers and rendered without using any renderfarms.

    Being all of us big fans of Gits, we though that producing our own tribute would be totally amazing to do. However, we were also fully aware of the level difficulties this kind of project would generate but that would not stop us. In fact it had not taken long before we had started organizing the production!

    This short movie was mostly produced inside Blender. It was also a great opportunity to really implement this multifunctional 3D software without the use of fancy studio equipment and stuff.

    Believe us when we tell you that our three computers had their share of suffering and let´s forget all the headaches that involved. We even succeeded on totally killing one of those computers. RIP :) :)

    Regardless all that, we are very pleased with the final result and hope that you´ll enjoy it as much as we do.
