Last-minute project with Manto Films

We recently teamed up with Manto Films and really enjoyed it. 

Here’s why our first co-production on a last-minute project with this fantastic production company was so much fun …

More about the brief.

No media production company worth their salt is a stranger to last-minute projects!  The brief?  Deliver 3D animation in less than 48 hours!!

Manto’s enquiry came through to Distant Future Animation at just before 4PM on a Wednesday.  Oh, and it had to be included in their video edit by close of play on Friday.

More about the project.

On this occasion, the job landed in the lap of our Managing Director, Bill Beaumont, who had literally only just returned from a trip to Tokyo.

Rather than fall victim to jet lag, he got stuck in, taking the CAD drawings from Manto as a starting point, before importing them to the in-house software in preparation for the animation stage of the project.

Putting it all together!

The next stage was that the artwork needed to match the requirements of the client’s brief, so Manto’s client, and in-keeping with the video footage of the project so far.

What we produced included techniques such as texture and lights effects (to make a wall look more realistic), before final rendering of the work.

We delivered, in HD, on Friday AM!

Making last-minute projects happen!
