Mbwana and his best friend Juma are two young men with big dreams. These dreams become reality when they photograph a gigantic fish leaping out of the sea and their small town blossoms into a tourist hot-spot as a result. But for Mbwana, the reality isn't what he dreamed – and when he meets the fish again, both of them forgotten, ruined and old, he decides only one of them can survive. Jonah is a big fish story about the old and the new, and the links and the distances between them. A visual feast, shot though with humour and warmth, it tells an old story in a completely new way.

  2. They say you should observe a piece of art deeply to understand its concept and interpret it in your own way, we think that Jean-Paul Frenay took this idea and twisted it into something even bigger than just an interpretation. He made sure to create an introspective “sarcastic” adventure.

    We were so astonished when we received this and proud to present to you a visual piece communicating social behaviors in different sceneries that will put you into a hypnotic experience.

  3. For the highly anticipated multi-platform title "Dishonored," Psyop and ROKKAN created an engrossing prequel series for Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios. The online series gives gamers a first-hand glimpse into the steampunk-inspired, shadowy whaling city of Dunwall, where plague is rampant and the city is in disarray and on the verge of dystopia.

    ROKKAN and Psyop worked very closely with Bethesda Softworks to create a look and feel that was truly unique. Inspiration was taken from the artistic feel of the game as established by Arkane Studios, but with a twist.

    The three webisodes were predominantly produced by hand. Each frame was essentially a fully rendered style frame, which was then enhanced with 3D elements to add to the painterly atmosphere, dimension and depth of each shot.

    “Usually when we animate, it is largely a CG production” said Psyop creative director Jon Saunders. “After we saw the story line, we decided to draw each style frame thirty or forty times and create a cell animated look and give it a sort of a painting-come-to-life effect."

    The prequels, although stylistically different from Dishonored the game, accurately portray the story of Dunwall and showcase the fantasy worlds that Psyop is known for creating.

    “After vetting several animation studios, Psyop stood out because they understood the story we were trying to tell. They were the only studio who could really bring the stories to life with their world renown animation precision and craft," said Charles Bae, Chief Creative Officer, ROKKAN. "Bethesda and ROKKAN's approach to the prequels was to give context to the oppressive world of Dishonored, establishing the story up to the point of the player's immersion at the start of the game. Our primary objective was to tell a great story in the simplest and most compelling format we could, period," added Bae.

    The official release, scheduled for October 9th, is already getting strong advance reviews and is set to be a smash hit for the fall.

  5. Gemini - The long awaited Main Titles for OFFF Barcelona's 18th edition by GIANTSTEP.

    "This sequence is about McLuhan's famous quote "The medium is the message" infused with Greek mythology, Gemini. We adopted the story of Gemini and paralleled their story with the history of media; their secret birth, sisterhood, and death/resurrection along with letterpress printing, broadcast transmutation, and computer/AI world.

    Carefully composed shots allow the viewer to experience our poetic imagination of the story that we have arranged. We made sure the visual rhythm was achieved in the manner of visual poetry by repetition of imagery."

    Dive into this mesmerising sequence that explores a narrative masterpiece presenting each artist who joined OFFF Barcelona 2018.
