It’s a Bollywood-Hollywood David vs. Goliath Showdown at China’s Cinemas
It’s a Bollywood-Hollywood David vs. Goliath Showdown at China’s CinemasComment Now Follow CommentsFor the past week China’s box office has been dominated by foreign films, with the top 5 ranks held by imports. This is a rare, but not entirely unprecedented situation.
I am grateful for the chance to be part of this project and proud of my team at Pixomondo Beijing!
This fully 3D printed commercial for Zihua Creative (zihua.com.cn), China’s first online learning platform focused on the creative industries, illustrates how creatives must unbox themselves to drive change in the creative industries. Goodstein partnered with Pixomondo, Idea RP and the in-house creative team of Zihua in producing this film, which fuses traditional stop motion animation with cutting-edge 3D printing technology. Although the film is under one minute long, the team dedicated several months and 3D printed more than 600 “Boxman” figurines in order to complete the project – the first of its kind in the world. This animated short highlights a number of the courses that will be offered on the Zihua platform, including character design, CG animation, stop motion animation, illustration, film scoring, sound design and 3D printing.

… Journey, Ironman 2, Percy Jackson, The Loosers, Nightmare on Elmstreet, Hindenburg … Just trying to catch up on the last year in this post 🙂 What a productive year! We just opened the “new” PIXOMONDO Beijing facility 2 years ago and already finished our work on the 8th Hollywood movie, several TV shows, commercials and a lot of very nice local projects.
Thanks to everyone who made that possible and supported us. Big respect to the team – especially the artists, leads, coordinators, managers who believe in and work so much for our goal to develop this facility as a “visual effects and design lighthouse” for high-quality productions and a good and collaborative working environment in China. I guess we are developing our very own way on how we do productions and business here …. There is still a lot of hard work in front of us, but I am sure this facility has a bright future. I hope I will find the time to post some more about the projects we were doing and the ones we are working on now. (If we are allowed to talk about them 😉Read More
