View Full Version : Plankton Invasion 1 and 2 minute trailers

09-29-2011, 03:40 AM
Plankton Invasion is an animated TV series in production (Season 1: 7min x 39 episodes). The first episode has already aired on VTM Kazoo in Belgium and Canal+ starts airing it in France next month, and hopefully with world domination soon to follow.
It's animated at TeamTo in France, and Grid is doing the rendering and effects in Belgium as a co production. I've had the pleasure of working in Belgium (good beers) on pipeline, automation, rendering and effects the past few months. It's animated in Maya and rendered in FPrime.
Hope you enjoy the trailers.

I adore their stuff -- this looks excellent, here's hoping the episodes get released online and/or worldwide as well!

Great stuff!

Are Thuristar still involved in the project?

Thuristar is the company of the director who made it, so yes.

Fprime is still very good at fast 3d depth of field, which this series uses a lot.
The original web series was animated by Joeri in messiah, but when TeamTo took over the animation they had to place it into the pipeline they already had for animation.
