The Witches

DESCRIPTION

Reimagining Roald Dahl's beloved story for a modern audience, Robert Zemeckis's visually innovative film tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, she wisely whisks him away to a seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world's Grand High Witch has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe-undercover-to carry out her nefarious plans. Zemeckis is joined by a world-class team of filmmakers, including Alfonso Cuarón, Guillermo del Toro and Kenya Barris. The cast includes powerhouse performances from Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci, Kristin Chenoweth and Chris Rock, with newcomer Jahzir Kadeen Bruno as the brave young hero.

TV Series

The Liberator

Juice

j.studio

DESCRIPTION

Created by Jeb Stuart The Liberator tells the true story of the bloodiest and most dramatic march to victory of the Second World War: the battlefield odyssey of maverick U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks and the 157th Infantry Regiment from Oklahoma. The National Guard unit comprised primarily of cowboys, Native Americans, and Mexican-Americans entered the war with their Invasion of Italy and fought for over five hundred days until the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp.

Th­e Liberator is a four-part live-action and CGI hybrid animation series produced using the Trioscope Enhanced Hybrid Animation (EHA). It’s an exciting, whole new kind of visual language that offers a fresh take on traditional storytelling.

Trioscope is a proprietary animated drama engine that fuses live-action with animation for a groundbreaking moving graphic novel experience. It’s Trioscope’s patent-pending platform leaps over the uncanny valley, empowering filmmakers to capture the emotional fidelity of live-action performances and marry them with visually arresting worlds. The result is stories of unlimited scope and imagination. Trioscope delivers all the escapism of CG blockbusters and all emotional resonance of big-budget drama at a fraction of the cost.
