Ignition

Ignition is an animation studio team at Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center working on a short animated adaptation of the Chinese story “High Mountain and Flowing Water”.

The story is about a zither (a stringed instrument) master, who played music inspired by lofty mountains and flowing water; broke his strings after the mountain recluse who knew the tune of his heart passed away.

We aim to bring the Chinese ink style painting aesthetic into our art style and create an authentic world using Unreal engine for production and rendering.

We received the pre-production materials from the previous animation studio team and we will also create a new pre-production package for the future team.

Project Instructors: Ruth Comley, Ricardo Washington, Mo Mahler, John Dessler
