Cinematography: Imageworks studios challenges for Over The Moon

Our professional appointment Cinematography in Animation Industry takes us to Vancouver to discover the secrets of the last movie of veteran animator Glen Keane.
The Sony Pictures Imageworks studios in their Canadian offices show us three behind-the-scenes videos from Over The Moon, a film co-produced by the Chinese Pearl Studio and directed by Keane.

The videos show us the unusual challenges the film posed to the artists, especially the settings and characters that inhabit the dark face of the moon, a fantastic and technicolor world that also required new rules on the plausible functioning of the whole environment.

In the first video the CG Supervisor Clara Chan takes us inside the architecture of Lunaria, the fluorescent city whose buildings are constantly changing and becoming more and more complex as you get closer to the center, with materials together fluorescent, luminous, reflective and much more, for a unique final effect:

In the second video, Sacha Kapijimpanga, chief character animator, focuses on the moon Royal Goddess Chang'e, dressed in intricate clothing designed by Chinese fashion star Guo Pei, and his studied diva movements, as conceived by the director:

In the third, the special effects supervisor David Smith talks about the more nebulous aspects of Lunaria, the impalpable lunar creatures and their coloring inspired by the Holi Festival of Colors, a religious holiday of Indian origin that symbolizes rebirth and reincarnation and more concrete creatures such as humans or earth animals:

Distributed by Netflix, the film is available from October 2020.
