3D Animated Pilot
Boys and Girls 6-9 Years Old
22 Minute Episode


Director / Writer / Production Designer / Concept Artist

In 2010 I opened an animation studio with two partners and this animated series pilot was our first project. We wanted to produce something with great artistic quality but it was a challenge as we had a very limited budget and a tight schedule. It was also a turning point for me as it was my first time directing and writing.

It was an amazing experience because I learned a lot in trying to create something easy to produce but rich enough not to show our limitations. We used a mix of 2D and 3D techniques.

This is the colorscript I made for this episode. Because of our rendering limitations, we had to find a technique where we could combine painted textures with a very fast render. So this colorscript was very important because we had to paint the color of the lightning in the textures.
