The day has finally come. It has been a long 3 years of hard work by hundreds of people involved in the project, and it’s literally brimming with the blood, sweat, and tears of so many staff members. So, I hope you all enjoy what we created and can see all that passion packed into the finished product. The movie was given the same treatment as a big CG theatrical release so trust me when I say it’s a title you will want to own on Blu-ray — in 1080p High Definition with amazing 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. For those who would like to see exactly what it took to produce this film, you can check out the 11 featurettes created first hand by the production team. Various stages of filmmaking are described in vivid detail: from how the character, ship, and bug designs were made and converted to CGI models — to how the motion capture movements were imported.
