PRESENTING CG RnD IN ANIMATION SHORT FILM PRODUCTION

Welcome to POUTNÍK

We are a community of professional 3D animators that teamed up under ANOMALIA (organised by Prague production company 3BOHEMIANS).

During summer 2014 we produced the CG animated short film „POUTNÍK“ together with Keith Lango, director and entrepreneur in CG animation.

Welcome to the site where we showcase our collaborative art.

You won’t believe this is not a 2D film!

Our vision

CG animation is no longer limited to just the expensive PIXAR style. The tools enable the animation artists to engage in Research & Development of new styles and find solutions that fit very tight conditions and budgets that many animation productions struggle with. Poutník short film embodied the goal to train and support the independent artists to become liberated from expensive details and heavy duty production demands. Keith Lango has developed his unique 3D solution for such low budget projects driven by performance, acting and production efficiency.

Collaborative art

Modern animation is a collaborative art which requires not only talent, skills and an experience of an individual artist, but on top of that also solid understanding and passion for team collaboration and responsible decision-making. Thanks to the technical solution and ingenious directing method provided by Keith, the animators were granted authorship over their shots and, therefore, became free to explore multiple acting choices in real time and in direct and personal collaboration with the director himself.

ANOMALIA Labs

ANOMALIA is a TOP 20 BEST International training platform which systematically merges continuing education and production development in order to boost professionalism, leadership and advanced art skills of the participating artists. This short film gave the team of animators a chance to work on a project which was cooked up from various artistic and directing methods as well as multiple animation and live-action techniques combined together.

Professionalism

We invite best professional supervisors and directors from the most successful studios. Their passion for sharing and directing teams renders the collaborative experience truly one-of-its-kind. Their leadership serves as the best method known to men to achieve professionalism in the craft via playful and intensive means in the sense of "school of play". These long term values are achieved only via such team Work and Study Experience.

The film

Before you can start developing great projects, it is good to set up a dedicated environment, collaborative mindset and solid planning to follow. But most importantly, make sure you have the right people.

Message from Keith Lango

Keith Lango has worked on icons of childhood (Mickey Mouse & GI Joe), singing vegetables, space traveling penguins, Oscar nominated films, commercials, top tier game cinematics and features. Along the way he has made a few short films. He is also one of the best mentors of animators, and his tutorials that are internationally known & utilized. Before there was any accredited training program in the world, Keith was already a dedicated trainer of the first generation of CG animators using online video tuts. If you are an Animator you need to know this guy! His experience stretches from studios such as Big Idea, Ree FX, DNA Productions, Blur Studio, and currently Keith is at Valve in Seattle.

Behind the Scenes

Research and Development (RND) as well as a short film production is basically a true proof of concept - trying out new things and making mistakes to learn from today, so we can achieve greater results tomorrow.
