2D Animation is not dead. What is dead is a lot of the old workflows, the tools, and many of the techniques. 2D animation will always have a charm that can never be reproduced by way of 3DCGI. Cinestar Interactive embraces a modern approach to a traditional art form.
We look to innovate the art of 2d character animation through the use of modern tools and techniques. It is our mission to find creative ways to make this art form more accessible, not only to our fellow animators and filmmakers but to the average consumer to whom animation, as a product, has long been an expensive and time consuming commodity.
Our large filmmaker space facility is now open to the general public. We offer enough space to shoot an entire film from one location without the hassles of travel and scouting. With a little bit of imagination and clever use of props and furniture, our versatile spaces can be used for anything from offices, churches, to living rooms and warehouse: even jail cells.
Our studio is available for film, tv, web, and photography projects, as well as special events. Click here for more details.
The all new Billy 2.0 features even higher construction quality with pixel perfect joint articulations, expressive hand gestures, a cleaner art style perfectly suited for TV and Film, and more balanced body fit based on newly discovered construction techniques.
Billy 2.0 will twist and bend seamlessly and has a higher range of motion than any character we’ve developed so far. Take a look at the video on the right and see how Billy 2.0 can be easily brought to life using using an Xbox Kinect sensor.
Make him your own.
If Billy fits the basic mold of the character you require for your production, you can easily customize him into your own character, either with your own artwork or using Billy 2.0 compatible ModPacks.
You may also hire us to create a special custom character just for you, built on top of the Billy 2.0 framework. Since the frameworks is already built, getting a new character out of him is a lot cheaper than having one built from scratch. Of course if you do need a custom character done from scratch, we do that too.
