animago AWARD & CONFERENCE 2019

BigHug and Lumatic share their story, of how they helped to breathe life into a cute little doll and death into the rest of the cast.

Creating a digital character that is an evolving sentient robotic doll poses some unique challenges, especially when the story of the movie itself is still evolving in the cutting room.
