Digital Media FX - The Power of Imagination

The Legend of A-Force
12-05-2001

(by digitalmediafx.com) Microvision Imaging, an Australian animation company, is preparing to bring a new TV series to Australia called "The Legend of A-Force". Created in LightWave 3D, Microvision is initially delivering 13 episodes for season one. However, some network executives are already asking about the story beyond season one..

"I think we have a great storyline which leads smoothly into the second season," says Tamar Puskul, MVI's PR manager. "In fact, right after reading the episode synopsis, the program purchaser at Fox Kids Australia called me and asked me what actually happens in episode fourteen. We believe that it is fantastic that people are on the edge of their seats waiting to see what happens in the second season."

The series is directed by Michael Hovivyan. "If our show was to stand out in the crowd, first we had to forget the fact we were dealing with CGI," says Hovivyan. "I always looked at it as it was just another live action production with real actors and real sets."

During initial work on the project, Microvision Imaging was told that its designs were "too real." The company was told that it needed to lose some of its photorealism and give way to a more cartoon feel to win over the "tweenies market."

The Legend of A-Force is set in the future. Further details on the show were not available at press time.
