Title: Alienating the Familiar with CGI: A Recipe for Making a Full CGI Art House Animated Feature
Writing Type: Paper
Exhibition: SIGGRAPH 2018: Original Narratives
Abstract Summary:

This paper is an exploration of the processes used and ideas behind an animated full CGI feature lm project that attempts to reach blockbuster production values, while retaining Art House sensibilities. It examines methods used to achieve these production values in an academic production environment and ways costs can be minimized while high quality levels are retained. It also examines the lm’s status as an Art House project, by comparing its narrative design and use of symbolism to existing works of Art House cinema.
