PREMISE Entertainment is a media-based production company specializing in visual storytelling and character development. With a portfolio spanning animation, film, publishing, and themed entertainment, PREMISE is a powerhouse in crafting captivating narratives brought to life by unforgettable characters.
In animation, every character has a voice, but what happens when your script demands an average of not just one, not two, but three speaking characters in every shot? That's the unique challenge PREMISE Entertainment faced as they began producing a fully animated feature film. With over 90 speaking characters throughout the movie, the complexity became a significant technical hurdle.
To overcome these challenges, PREMISE Entertainment turned to ExoTools, an industry-leading expert in character development and visual effects. ExoTools stepped in as a strategic partner, offering their extensive experience and insights to help PREMISE tackle the complexities of the project.
Collaborating closely with the producers and animator supervisors at PREMISE, ExoTools helped conceptualize, design, and implement pipelines and workflows tailored to seamlessly build the population of characters. By harnessing ExoTools' expertise, PREMISE was well-equipped to navigate the intricacies of character development in their ambitious project.
ExoTools' rich experience in high-end visual effects and animation productions was pivotal in setting the foundation for the movie's workflows and pipelines. As the movie's production gets underway, the strategic advice provided by ExoTools ensures that the processes work smoothly, even as the project's complexity increases with each character introduced into the narrative.
