The wireframe structure of "Zino"


3DLuVr: Are you satisfied with your own work and the overall outcome?

Manuel: It's in any case a pretty damn impressive feeling if you see the final compositing of your own work on the big screen. I for one had many "wow" experiences then.

Toby: I'm personally satisfied, especially since I knew of all the problems and the efforts it took to overcome them. And I'm happy with my personal work.

Michael: Generally speaking I'm quite comfortable with it. On the other hand there was almost no day during the production, where I wouldn't have wished for being able to start all over again in order to apply all the experiences right from the beginning, which I used to make every day. I always had new ideas for what I could have made differently and better.

Gildas: Unfortunately I belong to those pathological perfectionists, who would always find even the slightest mistake everywhere, although if it would likely never strike the audience at all. That way I certainly got us (my hair department and me) to work long hours quite often. And then again, if I see the result of our work on the film and compare it with other CG productions, I think we have nothing to be ashamed of, especially since there's no other film of that kind, where you would see so much hair and fur... ok, maybe on Ice Age!


3DLuVr: Will there be future productions of that kind from Ambient Entertainment?

Sure!

3DLuVr: And what would that be, if you're allowed to tell? ;-)

Manuel: I'll leave that up to the guys from Hannover. They are closer to the sources. :)

Gildas & Michael: Unfortunately we aren't allowed to disclose anything at this point.



3DLuVr: Did they give you guys a decent premiere party at least?

Manuel: Oh yes, sure! All the people involved in the project were there, even the actors who did the voice-overs and the boss of AMD. And we had the inevitable red carpet, oodles of beverages and a huge media coverage.

Toby: Yeah, a lot of hullabaloo, the red carpet, lots of gifts, loads of food and party! I personally found it to be very cool, that the orchestra was giving a tribute to Michael Kamen and that after the film the entire Ambient team was asked to come on stage.
