Cinesite show their creature animation skills in their first animated film called Beans that it takes the form of a mock-commercial. The look of the lunar environment is based on NASA film footage and actual lunar photography. The film was written and directed by animator Alvise Avati and produced by Cinesite’s Animation Director Eamonn Butler.
Eamonn describes the film: “At the start, the film is quite serious in tone and then it develops, becoming more dramatic as it progresses before ending on a surprise. To support this, the environment needed to be photo-realistic. We also wanted to push the animation and effects as far as we could to make the film as dramatic as possible before the payoff”.
Based in the heart of Soho, London, Cinesite has been creating world-class visual effects for nearly twenty years. From Bond films to Harry Potter, from Underdog to World War Z.
