This was the very first Film Festival piece we did for Sonoma. It was commissioned because they were doing a Tribute to John Lasseter (Pixar) with the main people from Pixar and Disney in attendance. It’s hard to think of even standing alongside Pixar with their technology so we created something simple and straightforward with the main character having no face or expression ability except for his legs and body.
At that time the Sonoma Film Festival was categorized as Cinema Epicuria with Film, Food and Wine at every event. It still ranks as my favorite Film Festivals and this as one of my favorite pieces. I always name my characters and so this was CHIP.
The sample below is one of the first tests of three characters and part of the environment. The little Garlic is of course Freerunning (Parkour).
