Last-minute project with Manto Films

animated video production company Manto

Need animated video for your production company?  Then look no further …..

Our last-minute project with Manto Films was the first co-production with this fantastic production company.  We really enjoyed the project because it was a genuine challenge.  Deliver animation in less than 48 hours?  No problem!

More about the project

Manto’s enquiry came through to Distant Future at just before 4PM on a Wednesday.  On this occasion, the job landed in the lap of our Managing Director, Bill Beaumont.  All fine, except Bill had just literally 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, he then imported them into the in-house software, in preparation for the animation stage of the project.

Getting the project over the line

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

What we ultimately 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!
