We are Para Productions Animation Studio. This semester our team was the first animation project to experience working on both pre-production and production at the same time. This new setup allows teams to experience more of the animation process from concept to final edit and see how the pieces fit together. This semester we developed our animated short film, Race 2420, from pre-production materials that were provided to us. We developed a unique pipeline for this piece as it went from modeling to final rendering and edit, and now have a complete animated short.
In conjunction with the production piece, we also developed pre-production materials for a second story, Lovers Meet, that will be handed off to the spring semester team for production. This includes storyboards, animatics, and other useful materials we found helpful based on our experience working with the production project.
