Luna: Case Study

In order to best explain the various stages of animation from development to pre-production to production, the progression of Luna—an original short-form film which was created, developed and produced by Rainmaker Entertainment—will serve as a case study. Luna is a CG project produced for final delivery in both 3D and 3D stereoscopic. This case study will illustrate how a story can be produced for animation by outlining the various stages of its progress from its earliest conception to final output.

All of the elements from Luna illustrated in this book can be viewed interactively at www.rainmaker.com/luna http://www.rainmaker.com/luna. The website presents 2D imagery with color as well as moving turntables, animation tests, and the various stages of the story reel from boards through final animation, lighting and sound.
