Alienating the familiar with CGI: a recipe for making a full CGI Art House animated feature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

This paper is an exploration of the processes used and ideas behind an animated full CGI feature film 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, but high quality levels retained. It also examines its status as an Art House project, by comparing its narrative design and use of symbolism to existing works of Art House cinema.
