Magic Light Pictures’ and Studio Soi’s “The Gruffalo” has been nominated for an Oscar. We couldn’t be happier and we would once again like to thank all the fine people who worked so hard on this.

The Amazing World of Gumball

January 25th, 2011

Today we completed work on the Cartoon Network series „The Amazing World of Gumball“. The series was developed by our friend Ben Bocquelet and produced by Dandelion Studios Ltd together with Boulder Media Ltd and Studio Soi.

Soi was involved since the show’s early days, starting from initial tests, working on the show’s  Layout/Blocking, modelling, rigging, shading and rendering of the Characters and sets and also contributed the show’s opening titles.

The creative spirit of the whole series and the many good friends we were able to work with made it a wonderful joyride to work on „Gumball“ and we’re looking forward to the wrap party this week in London!

Cheers and à bientôt to the whole Mannschaft!

Studio Soi moved …
