Dark, satyric, and strong 3D animated marionette show about the mainstream genre “entertainment”!.
The graduation film from The Animation Workshop/VIA UC, show to us, the audience, how will the naive freshly carved prince and his co-actors withstand their audience’s insatiable appetite for entertainment.
The film was made by a team of third year Character Animation and CG Arts students at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark.
(V-Ray for Maya, Zbrush and Nuke. Premiere was used for editing. Most of the textures are hand painted by team.)
