Animators New Opportunities
Fathom Studios first major feature film effort, in production since 1998, is called Delgo. It is described by the creators as a "fantasy epic adventure of a world's struggle for unity." You can view the trailer here or the Website here. The movie is fully funded with work currently underway on Hollywood voice talent and distribution.
To attract interest of animators and animation enthusiasts, Fathom Studios posts official production digital dailies reports to its site so that anyone with an online connection can follow the progress and inside workings of the movie. Here's what Fathom Studios says about its Digital Dailies reports:
"What these Digital Dailies offer is something that has never been done, a window to the world of the reality of the animation process. The postings on this site (while slightly delayed) are what actually occur on our virtual set. You can see and read it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly. We hope that students, burgeoning animators, and film enthusiasts alike can all learn from and appreciate what is involved in the making of a computer animated movie. Education is the key to unlocking everyone's creative potential."
